Documentation Frame Injection Vulnerability (CVE-2013-1571)
IBM Security Access Manager for Web
6.0, 6.1, 6.1.1, 7.0
Java API Documentation contains a frame injection vulnerability.
DESCRIPTION: HTML documentation generated by the Javadoc tool used by TAMeb
contains a security vulnerability. The vulnerability allows an attacker to
craft a malicious link to the documentation which injects arbitrary content
into the mainframe. The injected content appears to originate from the site
hosting the documentation, but in fact it is hosted elsewhere, and may contain
malicious links or content. This type of attack is known as "clickjacking".
The attack does not require authentication and may be exploited remotely if the
HTML page is network available, but some degree of specialized knowledge and
techniques are required. An exploit would not impact the confidentiality of
information or the availability of the system, but data integrity could be
CVSS Base Score: 4.3
