APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When you invoke a service by using executeServiceByName and you
    get an error page, the stack traces are shown in the HTML source
     code.  The end user does not need to see the stack traces,
    which contain internal implementation details.

Local fix

Problem summary

  • It is possible for end users to invoke executeServiceByName in
    ways that result in the error page being shown with the stack
    traces in the HTML source code.  These stack traces could
    contain fragments of back-end code and structure, which is
    considered a security risk.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Fixes for IBM BPM 7.5.1.0, 8.0.1.2, and 8.5.0.1 are available,
    which removes
    stack traces from the error page for executeServiceByName.
