Summary

IBM MQ Appliance has resolved multiple AngularJS vulnerabilities.

Vulnerability Details

CVEID:   CVE-2020-7676
DESCRIPTION:   angular.js is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to inject malicious script into a Web page which would be executed in a victim's Web browser within the security context of the hosting Web site, once the page is viewed. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim's cookie-based authentication credentials.

Third Party Entry:   172544
DESCRIPTION:   AngularJS is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input by the document.implementation.createHTMLDocument(). A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to inject malicious script into a Web page which would be executed in a victim's Web browser within the security context of the hosting Web site, once the page is viewed. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim's cookie-based authentication credentials.
CVSS Base score: 6.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/172544 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N)

Third Party Entry:   172550
DESCRIPTION:   AngularJS is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by the failure of the $sanitize sanitizer to traverse the HTML when one or more of the elements in the HTML have been "clobbered". A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause a denial of service.
CVSS Base score: 5.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/172550 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:L)

Third Party Entry:   172543
DESCRIPTION:   AngularJS is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input by the $http function. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to inject malicious script into a Web page which would be executed in a victim's Web browser within the security context of the hosting Web site, once the page is viewed. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim's cookie-based authentication credentials.
