Cross-Site Scripting vulnerabilities allow a third party to manipulate the content or behaviour of a web application in a user's browser, without compromising the underlying system.
Different Cross-Site Scripting related vulnerabilities are also classified under this category, including "script insertion" and "cross-site request forgery".
Cross-Site Scripting vulnerabilities are often used against specific users of a website to steal their credentials or to conduct spoofing attacks.
Manipulation of data
This includes vulnerabilities where a user or a remote attacker can manipulate local data on a system, but not necessarily be able to gain escalated privileges or system access.
The most frequent type of vulnerabilities with this impact are SQL-injection vulnerabilities, where a malicious user or person can manipulate SQL queries.
Two vulnerabilities have been reported in IBM System Storage products, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting and SQL injection attacks.
1) Input passed via the "updateRegn" parameter to SoftwareRegistration.do is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.
2) Input passed via the "selectedModuleOnly" parameter to ModuleServlet.do is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
The vulnerabilities are reported in IBM System Storage DS Storage Manager versions prior to 10.83.xx.18.
Update IBM System Storage DS Storage Manager to version 10.83.xx.18 or later.
