A security issue has been reported in SAP BusinessObjects, which can be exploited by malicious people to bypass certain security restrictions and compromise a vulnerable system.
The security issue is caused due to the dswsbobje.war module deploying axis2 with default credentials. This can be exploited to gain access to an affected system and execute arbitrary code by uploading a web service.
Solution: Reportedly, fixes are available in SAP Security Note 1432881.
