Vulnerability Details

CVEID: CVE-2015-5174
DESCRIPTION: Apache Tomcat could allow a remote attacker to traverse directories on the system. An attacker could send a specially-crafted URL request containing "dot dot" sequences (/../) in the getResource(), getResourceAsStream() and getResourcePaths() ServletContext methods to obtain a directory listing for the directory.
CVSS Base Score: 5.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/110860 for the current score

CVEID: CVE-2016-0221
DESCRIPTION: IBM Cognos TM1 is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability using a specially-crafted URL to execute script in a victim's Web browser within the security context of the hosting Web site, once the URL is clicked. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim's cookie-based authentication credentials.

CVEID: CVE-2016-0346
DESCRIPTION: IBM Cognos Business Intelligence 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.
CVSS Base Score: 5.4

CVEID: CVE-2016-0729
DESCRIPTION: Apache Xerces-C XML Parser library is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by improper bounds checking during processing and error reporting. By sending specially crafted input documents, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause the library to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code on the system.
CVSS Base Score: 7.3
