IBM WebSphere Application Server 7.0 < 188.8.131.52 / 8.0 < 184.108.40.206 / 8.5 < 220.127.116.11 OAuth Provider XSS
Low Nessus Plugin ID 90316
SynopsisThe remote web application server is affected by an XSS vulnerability.
DescriptionThe IBM WebSphere Application Server running on the remote host is version 7.0 prior to 18.104.22.168, 8.0 prior to 22.214.171.124, or 8.5 prior to 126.96.36.199. It is, therefore, potentially affected by a reflected cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability due to a failure to properly validate output from the OAuth provider before returning it to users.
An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted URL, to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session within the security context of the hosting website.
SolutionApply IBM WebSphere Application Server version 7.0 Fix Pack 41 (188.8.131.52) / 8.0 Fix Pack 12 (184.108.40.206) / 8.5 Fix Pack 9 (220.127.116.11) or later. Alternatively, apply the appropriate Interim Fixes as recommended in the vendor advisory.
