Improper Privilege Management in openemr/openemr


Reported on

Sep 24th 2021


A predefined Front desk receptionist have access to the Audit Log Tamper Report function. By default this is a predefined system administrator function, and no other users should be able to access this function.

Proof of Concept

  • Log in with a Front desk receptionist user

  • Simply open the following URI /openemr/interface/reports/audit_log_tamper_report.php

  • The data is being displayed for the unauthorized user.


A receptionist user is able to access the Audit Log, where information can gained about the failed login attempts.
