http://erpscan.com/advisories/erpscan-15-011-sap-mobile-platform-xxe/
Date published: 15.03.2015
Vendors contacted: SAP


2. VULNERABILITY INFORMATION
Class: XML External Entity [CWE-611]
Impact: XML external entity, information disclosure, denial of service
Remotely Exploitable: Yes
Locally Exploitable: No


3. VULNERABILITY DESCRIPTION
The problem is caused by a program error in SAP Mobile Platform 3.0 due 
to the incorrect use of an XML parser (/mobiliser servlet).
By default, the parser opens external entities referenced within an XML 
input, which can then lead to malicious content being parsed.
This malicious content can reference internal resources, such as files.
These internal resources can be disclosed in the response to the 
request, or can be used to perform a denial of service attack on the 
parsing system, rendering the application content temporarily unavailable.


4. VULNERABLE PACKAGES
SAP Mobile Platform 3.0
Other versions are probably affected too, but they were not checked.


5. SOLUTIONS AND WORKAROUNDS
To correct this vulnerability, install SAP Security Note 2125513.
