CVEID: CVE-2015-7453
DESCRIPTION:
IBM Jazz Foundation 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.
CVSS Base Score: 6.1
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/108296 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:C/C:L/I:L/A:N)


CVEID: CVE-2015-7471
DESCRIPTION:
IBM Rational Team Concert (RTC) is vulnerable to HTML injection. A remote attacker with project administrator privileges could send a project that contains malicious HTML code, which when the project is viewed, would be executed in the victim's Web browser within the security context of the hosting site.
CVSS Base Score: 4.8
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/108429 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:H/UI:R/S:C/C:L/I:L/A:N)
