IBM TRIRIGA Application Platform has potential Cross Site Request Forgery vulnerabilities in various URLs.
DESCRIPTION: Cross-Site Request Forgery vulnerabilities can allow an attacker to cause unintended actions to be performed by a logged-in user of the application. Customers on certain versions of the IBM TRIRIGA Application Platform are potentially impacted by these vulnerabilities, which can cause a logged-in user’s browser to perform application actions as though the user was performing them. The attacker could cause various actions to be performed, including but not limited to changing, creating, or deleting system data (records). A complete list of impacted URLs is provided below:
CVSS Base Score: 3.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See http://xforce.iss.net/xforce/xfdb/80630 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:C/A:C)

The recommended solution is to apply the fix for each named product as soon as practical. Please see below for information on the fixes available.
These vulnerabilities are resolved in IBM TRIRIGA Application Platform 3.3. Due to the threat posed by a successful attack, IBM strongly recommends that customers upgrade their platform to version 3.3 as soon as possible.

Until you apply the fixes, it may be possible to reduce the risk of successful attack by restricting network protocols required by an attack. For attacks that require certain privileges or access to certain packages, removing the privileges or the ability to access the packages from unprivileged users may help reduce the risk of successful attack. Both approaches may break application functionality, so IBM strongly recommends that customers test changes on non-production systems. Neither approach should be considered a long-term solution as neither corrects the underlying problem.
