CA20141103-01: Security Notice for CA Cloud Service Management

Issued: November 03, 2014

CA Technologies Support is alerting customers to four resolved vulnerabilities
with CA Cloud Service Management. Four vulnerabilities existed that could 
potentially allow a remote attacker to access user sessions, gain sensitive 
information, or cause a denial of service condition. CA Technologies fixed 
these vulnerabilities in all production environments as part of the Cloud 
Service Management Summer 2014 Upgrade.

The first vulnerability, CVE-2014-8471, concerned a replay attack. An attacker
would have needed access to a user's environment in order to carry out this 

The second vulnerability, CVE-2014-8472, involved Identity Provider 
authentication token verification. An attacker would have needed to manipulate
a user in order to exploit this vulnerability.

The third vulnerability, CVE-2014-8473, is a cross-site request forgery 
vulnerability. An attacker would have needed to manipulate a user in order to
exploit this vulnerability.

The fourth vulnerability, CVE-2014-8474, is an XML external entity 
vulnerability that could have allowed an attacker to potentially gain 
sensitive information or cause a denial of service condition.
