    ClearQuest Web incorrectly returns "Internal Error" when it
    should return "Application Error" during several exceptions.
     CQ does not actually expose any internal information, so
    there is no vulnerability.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available in ClearQuest 7.1.2.6 and 8.0.0.2.
    Application Error is returned instead of Internal Error.
    

Temporary fix
