IBM WebSphere Application Server Input Validation Flaw in Admin Console Lets Remote Users Conduct Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1038978
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1038978
CVE Reference:   CVE-2017-1380   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Jul 24 2017
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): 7.0, 8.0, 8.5, 9.0
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in IBM WebSphere Application Server. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The Admin Console does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input. A remote user can cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the IBM WebSphere 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.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the IBM WebSphere 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:   IBM has issued a fix (APAR PI82078).
