A vulnerability classified as problematic has been found in Apache CloudStack 4.5.0 (Cloud Software). Affected is an unknown code of the component SAML 2.0 Plugin. The manipulation with an unknown input leads to a xml external entity vulnerability. CWE is classifying the issue as CWE-611. The software processes an XML document that can contain XML entities with URIs that resolve to documents outside of the intended sphere of control, causing the product to embed incorrect documents into its output. The impact remains unknown. CVE summarizes:

Apache CloudStack version 4.5.0 and later has a SAML 2.0 authentication Service Provider plugin which is found to be vulnerable to XML external entity (XXE) injection. This plugin is not enabled by default and the attacker would require that this plugin be enabled to exploit the vulnerability. When the SAML 2.0 plugin is enabled in affected versions of Apache CloudStack could potentially allow the exploitation of XXE vulnerabilities. The SAML 2.0 messages constructed during the authentication flow in Apache CloudStack are XML-based and the XML data is parsed by various standard libraries that are now understood to be vulnerable to XXE injection attacks such as arbitrary file reading, possible denial of service, server-side request forgery (SSRF) on the CloudStack management server.

The weakness was presented 07/19/2022. The advisory is available at lists.apache.org. This vulnerability is traded as CVE-2022-35741 since 07/13/2022. The technical details are unknown and an exploit is not available. The structure of the vulnerability defines a possible price range of USD $5k-$25k at the moment (estimation calculated on 08/06/2022).

There is no information about possible countermeasures known. It may be suggested to replace the affected object with an alternative product.
