IBM Tivoli Application Dependency Discovery Manager Web UI Portal Multiple Vulnerabilities

Release Date : 2013-02-11

Criticality level : Less critical
Impact : Hijacking
Cross Site Scripting
Spoofing
Where : From remote
Solution Status : Vendor Patch

Software: IBM Tivoli Application Dependency Discovery Manager 7.x

Description:
A weakness and multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in IBM Tivoli Application Dependency Discovery Manager, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct spoofing, session fixation, cross-site scripting, and request forgery attacks.

1) Certain unspecified input passed to cdm/Welcome.do is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.

2) Input passed via the "msgId" parameter to cdm/Welcome.do is not properly verified before being used as link. This can be exploited to display an arbitrary website within certain frames.

3) The application allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests to the Web UI Data Management Portal without performing proper validity checks to verify the requests. This can be exploited to e.g. insert a link when a logged-in user visits a specially crafted web page.

4) An error in the handling of sessions can be exploited to hijack another user's session by tricking the user into logging in after following a specially crafted link to cdm/logon.do.

The weakness and vulnerabilities are reported in versions prior to 7.2.1-TIV-ITADDM-FP0004.

Solution:
Reported by the vendor.

Provided and/or discovered by:
Apply Fix Pack 7.2.1-TIV-ITADDM-FP0004 or apply APAR IV32341.
