APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The Dojo toolkit that is shipped with IBM Business Process
    Manager (BPM) in the DocStore Admin application is vulnerable to
    cross-site scripting (XSS) because user-supplied input is
    improperly validated. If your coaches use the Dojo toolkit, a
    remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability by using a
    specially crafted URL to, when the URL is clicked, run a script
    in the user's web browser within the security context of the
    hosting website. An attacker could use this vulnerability to
    steal the user's cookie-based authentication credentials.
