Security Bulletin


Summary

Cúram is vulnerable to CRLF Injection attack when not deployed on IBM WebSphere.

Vulnerability Details

CVEID: CVE-2014-3012
DESCRIPTION:
IBM Cúram Social Program Management, when not deployed on IBM WebSphere Application Server, is vulnerable to CRLF Injection attack caused by improper sanitization of the user supplied code that is output into an http response header field. A remote attacker could inject CRLF combinations into HTTP headers in the custom JSPs using multiple unspecified parameters, which will allow the attacker to take control of a user's session/credentials or in some cases to prepare and make the web application more amenable to future attacks. These come in many forms including cross site scripting and HTTP Response Splitting.
