Some vulnerabilities and a weakness have been reported in IBM FileNet Application Engine, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct spoofing and cross-site scripting attacks.
1) The weakness is caused due to the Workplace component allowing to redirect users to a URL specified by an attacker when providing incorrect login credentials. This can be exploited to e.g. redirect users to an untrusted fake site.
2) Unspecified input in the Workplace component 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.
The vulnerabilities and the weakness are reported in versions prior to 3.5.1-021.
Solution: Update to version P8AE 3.5.1-021.
Provided and/or discovered by: Reported by the vendor.
