Security Bulletin


Summary

There are multiple security vulnerabilities in various components used by IBM Security Identity Manager

Vulnerability Details


The following vulnerabilities affect IBM Security Identity Manager (SIM).

CVE-ID: CVE-2014-6110

DESCRIPTION: IBM Security Identity Manager could allow a local user to bypass security on another user's SIM session due to it improperly logging out the previous user.

The vulnerability can be accessed from the local machine, is of low complexity, and does not require authentication. A successful exploit will not compromise the confidentiality of the system, could partially compromise the integrity of the system, and will not compromise the accessibility of the system.

CVSS Base Score: 2.1
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/96179 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:L/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N)


CVE-ID: CVE-2014-6098

DESCRIPTION: IBM Security Identity Manager could disclose cleartext passwords when an attacker sends a specially crafted request to the web server. An attacker could use those credentials to conduct further attacks against the system.

The vulnerability can be accessed from a remote network, is of low complexity, and requires authentication. A successful exploit could partially compromise the confidentiality of the system, will not compromise the integrity of the system, and will not compromise the accessibility of the system.

CVSS Base Score: 4.0
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/95961 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:L/Au:S/C:P/I:N/A:N)


CVE-ID: CVE-2014-6096

DESCRIPTION: IBM Security Identity Manager is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability using a specially-crafted URL to execute script in a victim's Web browser within the security context of the hosting Web site, once the URL is clicked. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim's cookie-based authentication credentials.

The vulnerability can be accessed from a remote network, is of medium complexity, and does not require authentication. A successful exploit will not compromise the confidentiality of the system, could partially compromise the integrity of the system, and will not compromise the accessibility of the system.

CVSS Base Score: 4.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/95944 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N)


CVE-ID: CVE-2014-6105

DESCRIPTION: IBM Security Identity Manager could allow a remote attacker to hijack the clicking action of the victim. By persuading a victim to visit a malicious Web site, a remote attacker could send a specially-crafted HTTP request to hijack the victim's click actions or launch other client-side browser attacks.

The vulnerability can be accessed from a remote network, is of medium complexity, and does not require authentication. A successful exploit will not compromise the confidentiality of the system, could partially compromise the integrity of the system, and will not compromise the accessibility of the system.

CVSS Base Score: 4.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/96144 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N)


CVE-ID: CVE-2014-6107

DESCRIPTION: IBM Security Identity Manager could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information. If the application is accessed via a network with HTTP, an attacker using man-in-the-middle techniques could recover packets for non-encrypted cookies that could potentially contain sensitive session information or credentials.

The vulnerability can be accessed from a remote network, is of medium complexity, and does not require authentication. A successful exploit could partially compromise the confidentiality of the system, will not compromise the integrity of the system, and will not compromise the accessibility of the system.

CVSS Base Score: 4.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/96150 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N)


CVE-ID: CVE-2014-6095

DESCRIPTION: IBM Security Identity Manager could allow a remote attacker to traverse directories on the system. An attacker could send a specially-crafted URL request to view arbitrary files on the system.

The vulnerability can be accessed from a remote network, is of low complexity, and does not require authentication. A successful exploit could partially compromise the confidentiality of the system, will not compromise the integrity of the system, and will not compromise the accessibility of the system.

CVSS Base Score: 5.0
