Wonderware Intelligence

Schneider Electric self-reported this vulnerability.


The following versions of Wonderware Intelligence, an operations management software, are affected:

Tableau Server/Desktop Versions 7.0 to 10.1.3 included in Wonderware Intelligence Versions 2014R3 and prior.


The vulnerability, if exploited, could allow a malicious entity to escalate its privilege to an administrator and take control over the host machine where Tableau Server is installed.


Tableau Server is embedded within the Schneider Electric Wonderware Intelligence software and contains a system account that is installed by default.
The default system account is difficult to modify to use non-default credentials after installation and changing the default credentials in the embedded Tableau Server is not documented.
As such, Schneider Electric has released a new software version that removes the default system account in the embedded Tableau Server.
If Tableau Server is used with Windows integrated security (Active Directory), the software is not vulnerable.
However, when Tableau Server is used with local authentication mode, the software is vulnerable.
The default system account could be used to gain unauthorized access.
CVE-2017-5178 has been assigned to this vulnerability.
A CVSS v3 base score of 9.8 has been calculated; the CVSS vector string is (AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H)
