Description

According to its self-reported version, the instance of IBM BigFix Compliance running on the remote web server is 1.9.70. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

  • A stored cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability exists in the Analytics component in the Web UI due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted request, to execute arbitrary script code in a user

"According to its self-reported version, the instance of IBM BigFix
Compliance running on the remote web server is 1.9.70. It is,
therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

  - A stored cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability exists
    in the Analytics component in the Web UI due to improper
    validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated,
    remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially
    crafted request, to execute arbitrary script code in a
    user's browser session. (CVE-2017-1178)

  - An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the
    Analytics component due to the use of outdated
    encryption algorithms. A man-in-the-middle (MitM)
    attacker can exploit this to disclose sensitive
    information. (CVE-2017-1179)

  - An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the
    Analytics component due to a weak default password
    policy. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit
    this, via a brute-force attack, to disclose user account
    credentials. (CVE-2017-1196)

  - A security weakness exists in the Analytics component
    due to a failure to securely lockout accounts after
    multiple failed authentication attempts. An
    unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to
    perform brute-force attacks. (CVE-2017-1197)");
