Security Bulletin

This security bulletin contains information about 2 vulnerabilities.

1) Cross-site scripting

EUVDB-ID: #VU7604

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1: 5.3 [CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:C/C:L/I:L/A:N/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2017-1380

CWE-ID: CWE-79 - Improper Neutralization of Input During Web Page Generation ('Cross-site Scripting')

Exploit availability: No

Description

The disclosed vulnerability allows a remote attacker to perform cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.

The vulnerability is caused by incorrect filtration of input data. A remote attacker can trick the victim to follow a specially crafted link and execute arbitrary HTML and script code in victim’s browser in security context of vulnerable website.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may allow a remote attacker to steal potentially sensitive information, change appearance of the web page, perform phishing and drive-by-download attacks.

Mitigation

Update 7.0.x to version 7.0.0.45 or later.
Update 8.0.x to version 8.0.0.14 or later.
Update 8.5.x to version 8.5.5.12 or later.
Update 9.0.x to version 9.0.0.5 or later.

Vulnerable software versions

IBM WebSphere Application Server: 7.0.0.0 - 9.0.0.4

No. We are not aware of malware exploiting this vulnerability.

2) Information disclosure

EUVDB-ID: #VU7605

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1: 3.8 [CVSS:3.1/AV:A/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:N/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2017-1382

CWE-ID: CWE-200 - Information exposure

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a local attacker to obtain potentially sensitive information.

The vulnerability is due to improper security restrictions imposed by the affected software. A local attacker can cause the application to set insecure file permissions after running custom startup scripts and gain access to sensitive information, such as log files on the targeted system.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results in information disclosure.

Mitigation

Update 7.0.x to version 7.0.0.45 or later.
Update 8.0.x to version 8.0.0.14 or later.
