IBM Tivoli Federated Identity Manager Input Validation Flaw Lets Remote Users Conduct Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
Severity Rating: Medium
- IBM Tivoli Federated Identity Manager versions 6.2, 6.2.1, 6.2.2
A vulnerability was reported in IBM Tivoli Federated Identity Manager and can be exploited by a remote attacker to conduct cross-site scripting attacks. The web user interface 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 Tivoli Federated Identity Manager 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.
Users are advised to update apply updates.
