Summary

Multiple Vulnerabilities discovered in web UI components of IBM Initiate Master Data Service.

Vulnerability Details


CVE-ID:  CVE-2014-4789
DESCRIPTION: IBM Initiate Master Data Service could allow a remote attacker to hijack a valid user's session, caused by the failure to update the session identifier after a successful authentication. By persuading a victim to visit a specially-crafted Web site, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to hijack another user's session and possibly launch further attacks on the system.
