IBM Cognos Business Intelligence Input Validation Flaw Lets Remote Conduct Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1036221
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1036221
CVE Reference:   CVE-2016-0221, CVE-2016-0346   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Jul 1 2016
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 10.1.1, 10.2, 10.2.1, 10.2.2
Description:   Two vulnerabilities were reported in IBM Cognos Business Intelligence. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The software does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input. A remote user can create a specially crafted URL that, when loaded by a target user, will cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the IBM Cognos Business Intelligence software and will run in the security context of that site. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

Vijay Chaudhary and Mohit Rawat reported one vulnerability. Jakub Palaczynski (ING Services Polska) reported one vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the IBM Cognos Business Intelligence software, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.
Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix.

The vendor's advisory is available at:
