Security Bulletin

Summary

Security Identity Adapter data traffic to/from IGI and ISIM server is not 
encrypted by default. Adapter installers have been updated to enable SSL by 
default. The customer can choose during installation to disable SSL. Note that
keeping the SSL enablement option requires certificates to be imported.

Vulnerability Details

CVEID: CVE-2017-1362

DESCRIPTION: IBM Security Identity Adapters store user credentials in the 
plain, which can be read by a local user. If the adapter SSL option is not 
explicitly enabled during installation, the adapters transmit data, including
user credentials, to IGI or the ISIM Server in clear text.

CVSS Base Score: 6.2

CVSS Temporal Score: See 
https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/126801 for the current 
score

CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined

CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N)
