CVE ID: CVE-2014-3106
Description: IBM Rational ClearQuest allows a remote unauthenticated attacker bypass security restrictions set by the "Local Access Only" ACL. ClearQuest introduced a new Help system since 7.1.2.02 in 2011, but the "Local Access Only" authentication type doesn't work. This would allow the attacker to view files they might not otherwise have access to.
