An authenticated user can create users with malformed user IDs in IBM® Intelligent Operations Center so that these new users cannot be deleted later from the system. Because the malformed users cannot be deleted at the application level, this is a denial of service issue.
DESCRIPTION: IBM Intelligent Operations Center (IOC) could allow an authenticated user to create arbitrary users which could cause ID management issues and result in code execution.
