Highest overall severity: High

 

Summary:

The psqlODBC driver that is included with Tableau products contains a heap-based buffer overflow. We recommend that all Tableau users upgrade to psqlODBC 9.6.5.

 

Impact:

An attacker exploiting this vulnerability may be able to execute arbitrary code or cause a crash.

 

Mitigation:

Windows: For Tableau products running on Windows the latest PostgreSQL ODBC driver should be installed.
Mac: For Tableau products running on Mac the latest PostgreSQL ODBC driver should be installed.
Linux: For Tableau products running on Linux follow these directions:


On CentOS and RHEL:

Download the .rpm file.
To install the driver, run the following command:
    sudo yum install tableau-postgresql-odbc-09.06.0500-1.x86_64.rpm

On Ubuntu:

Download the .deb file.
To install the driver, run the following command:
    sudo gdebi tableau-postgresql-odbc_09.06.0500-2_amd64.deb

 

Products and Versions: Tableau Server | Tableau Desktop | Tableau Bridge | Tableau Prep Builder | Tableau Reader | Tableau Mobile | Tableau Public Desktop
Versions that are no longer supported are not tested and may be vulnerable.

 

Tableau Server

Severity: High CVSS3 Score: AV:N AC:L PR:L UI:N S:U C:H I:H A:H - 8.8 High
Product specific notes:
        An authenticated user who has permissions to publish a workbook to Tableau Server can trigger this vulnerability.

 

Tableau Server on Linux does not include the PostgreSQL ODBC driver by default, and is therefore not listed below. However, the PostgreSQL driver is required for Admin View functionality and is often installed by the administrator as part of the deployment process. If the driver has been installed then Tableau Server on Linux is vulnerable.

 

Vulnerable versions:

  • Tableau Server on Windows 10.0 through 10.0.22

Support for Tableau Sever on Windows 10.0 ended on Feb, 19, 2019 (Supported Versions)

No new releases of 10.0 are planned. It is recommended to apply the above mitigation.

Product specific notes:

Tableau Desktop on Windows includes the 32-bit version of the psqlODBC driver. It is recommended that this driver be uninstalled. To uninstall the 32-bit version of the driver use Add/Remove Programs and uninstall 'psqlODBC'.

Vulnerable versions:

 

Acknowledgement:
This vulnerability was discovered by Kushal Arvind Shah of Fortinet’s FortiGuard Labs.

Highest overall severity: High

 

Summary:

Workbooks connected to published data sources that leverage user functions may not properly filter data the first time a view is loaded due to a caching issue.

 

Impact:

A user with access to a published workbook or data source can see unfiltered data for another user resulting in information disclosure within that same workbook. A malicious user cannot directly force this to happen.

Tableau Server

Severity: High CVSS3 Score: AV:N/AC:L/PR:L/UI:R/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N/CR:H - 7.5 High

Product specific notes:

This vulnerability affects the user filter functionality of Tableau server.

 

If you have already installed Tableau Server 2019.1.0 and plan to upgrade to 2019.1.1, you will need to take the following steps before you upgrade to ensure your cache is properly cleared:

tsm stop

tsm maintenance cleanup -r

install the new version 2019.1.1 and initiate the upgrade script to complete the upgrade.

 

If you have already installed Tableau Server 2019.1.0 and do not plan to upgrade to 2019.1.1, you will need to take the following steps to ensure your cache is properly cleared and the logical query cache is disabled:

tsm stop

tsm maintenance cleanup -r

tsm configuration set -k features.LogicalQueryCache -v false

tsm pending-changes apply

tsm start

 

For Tableau Mobile Views

If a Tableau Server version 2019.1.0 has been installed with offline favorites enabled, then Tableau Mobile clients connecting to that server may display incorrect data even if you have upgraded Tableau Server, or have already applied the mitigations referenced in this bulletin. We recommend that you run the removeStaleSheet script to determine if there are images that need to be regenerated. In the case where images need to be regenerated, the script will prompt you to force Tableau Server to regenerate the Tableau Mobile offline views.

 

To run the removeStaleSheet script:

 

1. Download the WINDOWSremoveStaleSheet or LINUXremoveStaleSheet script attached to this post and save it to the Tableau Server machine.

2. Open a command line on the Tableau Server machine.

3. Log into TSM.

4. Run the the WINDOWSremoveStaleSheet or LINUXremoveStaleSheet script.
