04. ### Vulnerability Description ###

SpagoBI contains a flaw that may allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. This flaw exists because the application does not restrict uploading for specific file types from Worksheet designer function. This may allow a remote attacker to upload arbitrary files (e.g. .html for XSS) that would execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser within the trust relationship between their browser and the server or more easily conduct more serious attacks.


05. ### Technical Description / Proof of Concept Code ###

An attacker (a SpagoBI malicious user with a restricted account) can upload a file from Worksheet designer function.

To reproduce the vulnerability follow the provided information and steps below:

- Using a browser log on to SpagoBI with restricted account (e.g. Business User Account)
- Go on:  Worksheet designer function
- Click on: Image  and Choose image
