CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N)



CVE ID: CVE-2014-4827

DESCRIPTION:
IBM QRadar 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.

CVSS Base Score: 4.3
