Description

IBM WebSphere Application Server is prone to a cross-site request forgery vulnerability.

Exploiting this issue may allow a remote attacker to perform certain actions in the context of an authorized user and gain access to the affected application; other attacks are also possible.

IBM WebSphere Application Server versions prior to 8.0.0.1 are vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
