Some vulnerabilities have been reported in IBM Workplace, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting and cross-site request forgery attacks.
1) Unspecified input 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) The application allows user to perform certain actions via HTTP requests, without performing any validity checks to verify the request. This can be exploited to perform actions with the privileges of a target user, who is e.g. tricked into visiting a malicious website.
Solution: Do not follow untrusted links or browse untrusted web sites while being logged in to the application, and filter malicious characters and character sequences in a web proxy.
Provided and/or discovered by: Reported by the vendor.
