JR50871: SECURITY APAR CVE-2014-4759 - USERS CAN INVOKE A DEFAULT ECM SEARCH SERVICE
Fixes are available
Closed as program error.
USERS CAN INVOKE A DEFAULT ECM SEARCH SERVICE BY USING ANY QUERY TO OBTAIN A LIST OF DOCUMENTS INCLUDING DOCUMENT PROPERTIES An Ajax service that is shipped with the Content Management toolkit allows users to search for IBM Business Process Manager document attachments from the Document List coach control. Authenticated users can invoke the default Enterprise Content Management (ECM) search service. The service accepts any document query as input. For example, users might invoke the service by using a query that incorrectly returns all documents including associated document properties. PRODUCTS AFFECTED: IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) Advanced IBM BPM Standard IBM BPM Express
By accepting any document query as input parameters, the service might incorrectly return a list of all documents, including associated document properties, which might not be desirable behavior. Access to document content is restricted so that only users who are authorized to work with a process instance can view contents of documents that are attached to that process instance. However, sensitive information might be stored in document properties. Therefore, the default ECM search service must not return user-defined document properties.
A fix is available for IBM BPM V184.108.40.206 and V220.127.116.11 that updates the service to ignore user-provided select and from clauses. As a result, a user can use the service to obtain a list of documents, but only the predefined set of document properties (such as document name) will be returned. User-defined document properties are no longer available from the default search service. On Fix Central (http://www.ibm.com/support/fixcentral), search for JR50871: 1.
