Description

The version of IBM WebSphere Portal on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

  • A denial of service vulnerability exists in the Apache Commons FileUpload library that allows an attacker to cause the application to enter an infinite loop. (CVE-2014-0050)

  • An unspecified denial of service vulnerability exists that allows a remote attacker to crash the host by sending a specially crafted web request. (CVE-2014-0949)

  • A cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability exists in the 'FilterForm.jsp' script due to improper user input validation. (CVE-2014-0951)

  • An XSS vulnerability exists in the 'boot_config.jsp' script due to improper user input validation. (CVE-2014-0952)

  • An unspecified XSS vulnerability exists due to improper validation of user input. (CVE-2014-0953)

  • A privilege escalation vulnerability exists in the Web Content Viewer portlet due to improper handling of JSP includes. A remote attacker can exploit this issue to obtain sensitive information, cause a denial of service, or control the request dispatcher by sending a specially crafted URL request. (CVE-2014-0954)

  • An XSS vulnerability exists in the Social Rendering feature due to improper validation of user input. Note that this only affects installs using IBM Connections with the Social Rendering feature. (CVE-2014-0955)

  • An unspecified XSS vulnerability exists due to improper validation of user input in a JSP script. (CVE-2014-0956)

  • An unspecified open redirect vulnerability exists that allows an attacker to perform a phishing attack by enticing a user to click on a malicious URL. (CVE-2014-0958)

  • An unspecified denial of service vulnerability exists that allows an authenticated attacker to cause a successful login to loop back to the login page indefinitely. (CVE-2014-0959)

An attacker can exploit the XSS vulnerabilities to execute code in the security context of a user's browser in order to steal authentication cookies.
