IBM Security Information Queue (ISIQ) does not have a mechanism for terminating idle UI sessions. This leaves an unattended ISIQ session vulnerable to being compromised. As of v1.0.6, ISIQ automatically terminates a session that has been idle for 60 minutes. The timeout value is configurable.
DESCRIPTION: IBM Security Information Queue (ISIQ) could disclose sensitive information to an unauthorized user due to insufficient timeout functionality in the Web UI.
