Summary: IBM Cognos Business Intelligence is a web-based, integrated  
business intelligence suite by IBM. It provides a toolset for reporting,  
analysis, scorecarding, and monitoring of events and metrics. The software  
consists of several components to meet the different information requirements

Desc: Input passed via the 'backURL' GET parameter in '/p2pd/servlet/dispatch'  
is not properly verified before being used to redirect users. This can be  
exploited to redirect a user to an arbitrary website e.g. when a user clicks  
a specially crafted link to the affected script hosted on a trusted domain.
