Error description

  • CVEID: CVE-2017-1159
    DESCRIPTION: IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) could allow a
    remote attacker to conduct phishing attacks, using an open
    redirect attack. By persuading a victim to visit a
    specially-crafted Web site, a remote attacker could exploit this
    vulnerability to spoof the URL displayed to redirect a user to a
    malicious Web site that would appear to be trusted. This could
    allow the attacker to obtain highly sensitive information or
    conduct further attacks against the victim.
    
    CVSS Base Score: 7.4
    CVSS Temporal Score:
    See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/122891

    CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined

Problem summary

  • No additional information is available.
    
    
    PRODUCTS AFFECTED
    IBM BPM Advanced
    IBM BPM Standard
    IBM BPM Express
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix that ensures redirects are always relative, meaning that
    they are on the same server, is available for the IBM BPM
    V8.5.0.2, V8.5.5.0, and V8.5.6.2 fix packs and IBM BPM V8.5.7
    cumulative fix 2017.03.
    
    Note: A fix for IBM BPM V8.5.7 cumulative fix (CF) 2017.03 is
    available even though IBM BPM V8.5.7 CF 2017.03 is not
    vulnerable to this security issue. The intention of this interim
    fix is to prevent the following unnecessary warning message in
    IBM Installation Manager, which you see when you upgrade IBM
    BPM:
    
    "One or more fixes will be uninstalled when IBM(R) Business
    Process Manager <Advanced | Standard | Express> is updated to
    8.5.7. CF2017.03. The update does not address issues that were
    resolved previously by the maintenance packages. The problems
    might return if fixes for the following issues are not
    reapplied or have new fixes applied to prevent the problems
    from returning.
    
    - JR57478 in the package IBM(R) Business Process Manager
    <Advanced | Standard | Express> 8.5..."
