Security Bulletin: IBM Security Information Queue does not prevent a product's owner from being modified (CVE-2020-4290)

Security Bulletin


Summary

Each configured product in IBM Security Information Queue (ISIQ) has an owner who controls access to the product. It's possible for an attacker to intercept a product configuration request object and change the owner value, which would grant unauthorized access. As of v1.0.6, a product's owner is no longer determined by the configuration request object, and thus is not subject to modification.
