RSA Archer GRC 5.3 and 5.2SP1 platform contains fixes for multiple security 
vulnerabilities that could potentially be exploited by malicious users to 
compromise the affected system.


The vulnerabilities addressed in RSA Archer GRC 5.3 and RSA Archer GRC 5.2SP1

1. Path traversal vulnerability (CVE-2012-2293) This vulnerability may allow 
malicious users to upload arbitrary files to a vulnerable RSA Archer system 
using the relative paths. CVSSv2 Base Score: 9.0 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:S/C:C/I:C/A:C)

2. Improper permissions in Silverlight cross-domain policy (CVE-2012-2292) 
This vulnerability allows access to the RSA Archer application from any 
domain. This insecure permission may lead to cross-domain attacks. CVSSv2 Base
Score: 8.3 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:P/A:P)

3. Multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities (CVE-2012-1064) These 
vulnerabilities can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in
an RSA Archer users browser session in context of an affected RSA Archer 
application. CVSSv2 Base Score: 7.5 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)

4.Clickjacking vulnerability (CVE-2012-2294) A malicious user may exploit this
vulnerability by constructing a specially crafted Web page disguised as 
legitimate content to conduct clickjacking attacks. The users clicks in the 
malicious page may perform unwanted actions. CVSSv2 Base Score:6.8
