Description:   A vulnerability was reported in IBM WebSphere Application Server. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting and cross-site request forgery attacks.

The 'uddigui/navigateTree.do' page does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input in the keyField, nameField, valueField, and frameReturn parameters 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 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:   The vendor has issued a fix (APAR PK50245).

This fix will be included in the future WebSphere Application Server 6.1.0 fix pack 13 (6.1.0.13).
