CVE-2022-47075 Scanner Detail

Smart Office Web is a comprehensive office management and payroll solution designed for businesses to manage their employee details, attendance, payroll, and other HR-related tasks efficiently online. The platform is tailored for HR departments and office administrators, facilitating a streamlined process for managing workforce data and payroll operations. It aims to enhance productivity and ensure compliance with labor laws through its automated features, making it a critical tool for modern businesses aiming to optimize their human resource management practices.

The information disclosure vulnerability in Smart Office Web version 20.28 and earlier allows attackers to exploit insufficient security controls to download sensitive employee information without authentication. This vulnerability is particularly alarming as it exposes confidential data, such as employee names, codes, and potentially other personal and financial details, through accessible endpoints like ExportEmployeeDetails.aspx and ExportReportingManager.aspx. This flaw undermines the confidentiality and integrity of the data managed by the Smart Office Web platform.

This security issue arises from an insecure direct object reference (IDOR) at specific endpoints, allowing unauthorized access to sensitive CSV files containing employee information. By manipulating the action name parameter in requests to these endpoints, attackers can bypass authentication mechanisms to retrieve files that should only be accessible to authenticated and authorized users. The vulnerability highlights a significant oversight in access control and data protection mechanisms, making it critical to address promptly to prevent potential data breaches.

The exploitation of this vulnerability can lead to unauthorized disclosure of sensitive employee information, including personal identifiers and possibly financial details. Such exposure may result in identity theft, financial fraud, and reputational damage to both employees and the organization. It also poses legal and compliance risks, as data protection regulations mandate strict controls over personal data handling and privacy.
