Security Bulletin: IBM Sterling Certificate Wizard Shared Memory Permission Vulnerability (CVE-2013-1500)

Flashes (Alerts)


Abstract

The IBM Sterling Certificate Wizard is susceptible to a shared memory permission vulnerability.

Content

VULNERABILITY DETAILS:
CVEID: CVE-2013-1500
DESCRIPTION:
The GUI implementation may create a shared memory segment with world read/write permissions. If such a memory segment is created, it might allow potentially sensitive data to be accessed and modified by a local user with direct access to the environment on which the JRE is running.

If you always run the Certificate Wizard on a single user system (e.g. a laptop), this vulnerability does not apply to you.
