Vulnerability Details:

The security model of Pentaho Business Analytics consists of different
layers of Access Control (AC). The applicationContext directives defined in
the applicationContext-spring-security.xml file were of particular interest
and further examination of the access control entries revealed the
following misconfigurations.

--- ~~~ --- ~~~ ---
<sec:intercept-url pattern="\A/api/.*require-cfg.js.*\Z"
access="Anonymous,Authenticated" />
<sec:intercept-url pattern="\A/api/.*require-js-cfg.js.*\Z"
access="Anonymous,Authenticated" />
<sec:intercept-url pattern="\A/api/.*\Z" access="Authenticated" />
--- ~~~ --- ~~~ ---

Specifically, the last directive explicitly declares that the available
endpoints require that users are authenticated. However, the first and
second directives bypass this requirement by allowing unauthenticated
access to arbitrary "/api/*" endpoints when the "?require-cfg.js" URL
parameter is present. As a result, it is possible for unauthenticated users
to access arbitrary Pentaho API endpoints by including the
"?require-cfg.js" or "?require-js-cfg.js" URL parameter as part of the HTTP
request.

For example, the following URL can be used to retrieve the Pentaho API
version, http://localhost:8080/pentaho/api/version/show?require-cfg.js
