DESCRIPTION:
Two vulnerabilities have been reported in Splunk, which can be
exploited by malicious users to disclose sensitive information or
gain escalated privileges and by malicious people to conduct session
fixation attacks.

1) An error exists in the XML parser when XML external entity
references. This can be exploited to disclose certain information or
perform certain actions with escalated privileges.

2) An error in the handling of sessions can be exploited to hijack
another user's session by tricking the user into logging in after
following a specially crafted link using the "SPLUNKD_SESSION_KEY"
parameter.

The vulnerabilities are reported in versions 4.0 through 4.1.4.

SOLUTION:
Update to version 4.1.5.

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY:
The vendor credits Aaron, vtty.com.
