IBM Tivoli Identity Manager is prone to an HTML-injection vulnerability because the application fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input before using it in dynamically generated content.

Attacker-supplied HTML and script code would run in the context of the affected browser, potentially allowing the attacker to steal cookie-based authentication credentials or to control how the site is rendered to the user. Other attacks are also possible.

IBM Tivoli Identity Manager 5.0.0.5 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected. 

The following example input was provided:

<script>alert("bbbbb")</script>
