Two vulnerabilities have been reported in IBM WebSphere Application Server, which can be exploited by malicious users to bypass certain security restrictions and by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.
1) An error related to LPTA tokens in a WS-Security policy enabled Java API for XML Web Services (JAX-WS) application can be exploited to gain the same identity as a previously processed LTPA token.
2) Certain unspecified input passed to the web messaging 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.
Solution: Update to version 184.108.40.206 (Fix Pack 41)
Provided and/or discovered by: Reported by the vendor.
