Severity: Medium

 

Summary: Tableau Server and Tableau Desktop may misinterpret part of a password as a delimiter and fail to remove the entire password when writing log statements. Tableau writes logs to access-controlled areas of the files system.

 

Impact: A password used to connect with an ODBC-based connector may result in partial password disclosure. If the password contains one or more certain special characters, Tableau will interpret the characters as delimiters. In this case, a portion of the password will be written in cleartext to the application logs. An attacker with access to these log files will have access to a portion of the password, thereby increasing the probability of a successful brute-force attack on the database.

Summary: Tableau Server makes use of the Java JRE. The July 2018 updates to the Java JRE contained an unspecified High severity issue (CVE-2018-2942) that might present a risk to Tableau Server.

 

Impact: From http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/security-advisory/cpujul2018-4258247.html#AppendixJAVA

Applies to client and server deployment of Java. This vulnerability can be exploited through sandboxed Java Web Start applications and sandboxed Java applets. It can also be exploited by supplying data to APIs in the specified Component without using sandboxed Java Web Start applications or sandboxed Java applets, such as through a web service.

 

This vulnerability may allow for the compromise of the integrity, confidentiality and availability of Tableau Server.

Severity: Medium

 

Summary: This vulnerability requires that a malicious user embeds specific parameters in a Tableau workbook. The malicious user must also have rights to publish the workbook on Tableau Server. The malicious user must then construct a specially crafted URL to enable arbitrary javascript to run in the victim's browser at run time.

 

Impact: When users open the modified workbook via the specially crafted URL, arbitrary javascript can run in their browser session.
