Description

The version of IBM WebSphere Portal installed on the remote Windows host is 8.0.0.x prior to 8.0.0.1 CF21. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

  • A cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability exists 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
