- A flaw in the UI Subcomponent could allow an authenticated user the ability to alter the email address information of other users. (CVE-2012-3183)

- The UI Subcomponent is affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability due to lack of sanitization for the 'username' and 'StartItem' parameters.

- The 'selectedLocale' parameter in the UI Subcomponent is not properly sanitized and allows SQL injection.
