Impact On Business
A malicious unauthenticated user could abuse the lack of authentication check on SAP Solution Manager User-Experience Monitoring web service, allowing them to remotely execute commands in all hosts connected to the targeted SolMan through these SMD Agents.
Affected Components Description
SAP SolMan 7.2 introduces a bunch of web services which run on top of the SAP Java NetWeaver stack. The affected versions have a vulnerable web service exposed without authentication.
- SAP Solution Manager SP004 Patch 0011 and lower
- SAP Solution Manager SP005 Patch 0012 and lower

(Check SAP Note #2890213 for detailed information on affected releases)
The EemAdminService/EemAdmin web service endpoint, which is exposed by default in SolMan 7.2, does not require user authentication when someone tries to use it. As a SOAP endpoint, any unauthenticated attacker just with HTTP(s) access to the system will be able to send particular crafted SOAP messages in order to make use of the different actions that this endpoint provides.
This web service, present only in the Solution Manager, allows users to upload scripts that will be afterwards executed in the SMD agents connected to the targeted SolMan.
Because of a lack of sanitization, it is possible to craft particular scripts that could end up executing OS commands with SMD Agent user privileges.
SAP has released SAP Note 2890213 which provides patched versions of the affected components.
