CVE-2024-28848 is a vulnerability affecting OpenMetadata, a platform for discovery, observability, and governance. The vulnerability allows authenticated non-admin users to execute arbitrary system commands on the underlying operating system through the CompiledRule::validateExpression method. This is possible because the method evaluates an SpEL expression using an StandardEvaluationContext, enabling it to interact with Java classes such as java.lang.Runtime. The vulnerability can lead to remote code execution and poses a high risk to organizations as it allows unauthorized individuals to execute arbitrary commands on the system. There is also a missing authorization check in the affected path, allowing any authenticated non-admin user to trigger the vulnerable endpoint.
