Two vulnerabilities have been reported in IBM WebSphere MQ, which can be exploited by malicious users to bypass certain security restrictions and by malicious people to conduct cross-site request forgery attacks.
1) The application allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing any validity checks to verify the requests. This can be exploited to e.g. edit a users userspace or change permissions on file spaces if a logged-in user visits a malicious web site.
This vulnerability is reported in File Transfer Edition version 7.0.3 and 7.0.4 and Managed File Transfer version 7.5.0. Other versions may also be affected.
2) An error due to the application not validating access rights can be exploited to download other users files.
Successful exploitation of this vulnerability requires knowledge of the files URL.
This vulnerability is reported in File Transfer Edition version 7.0.3 and 7.0.4. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Apply APARs IC82761 and IC85516.
Provided and/or discovered by: Reported by the vendor.
