A recent product security scanning exercise identified that a cross-site request forgery vulnerability exists within REST in IBM Cúram Social Program Management. The issue relates to the checking of the HTTP referrer header for GET requests on the server side, which should be checked in a similar way to all other requests. Note: If you are using the REST API, you are vulnerable to cross-site request forgery.
Affected product(s) and affected version(s):
IBM Cúram Social Program Management 220.127.116.11 – 18.104.22.168 IBM Cúram Social Program Management 22.214.171.124 – 126.96.36.199
IBM Cúram Social Program Management 188.8.131.52 – 184.108.40.206
IBM Cúram Social Program Management 220.127.116.11 – 18.104.22.168
Note: The REST API was not present in version 6.0.5 and earlier versions, so these versions are not vulnerable.
