Cognos Powerplay WE Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for the ppdscgi.exe CGI

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The CGI script ppdscgi.exe, part of the PowerPlay
Web Edition package, is installed.

Due to design problems as well as some
potential web server misconfiguration
PowerPlay Web Edition may serve up data
cubes in a non-secure manner. Execution
of the PowerPlay CGI pulls cube data into
files in an unprotected temporary directory.
Those files are then fed back to frames in
the browser. In some cases it is trivial for an
unauthenticated user to tap into those data
files before they are purged.

Solution : Cognos doesn't consider this
problem as being an issue, so they
do not provide any solution.

Network Security Threat Level: Medium

Networks Security ID: 491
