In Splunk versions below 9.0.8 and 9.1.3, the “mrollup” SPL command lets a low-privileged user view metrics on an index that they do not have permission to view. This vulnerability requires user interaction from a high-privileged user to exploit. See Splunk Enterprise Metrics for information on Metrics.

Mitigations and Workarounds

If users do not log in to Splunk Web in a distributed environment, disable Splunk Web on those instances. See Disable unnecessary Splunk Enterprise components and the web.conf configuration specification file for more information on disabling Splunk Web.

If users do not need access to metrics indexes, remove authorization to search those indexes. See About configuring role-based user access for information on how to configure role-based user access.
