Vulnerability Details

CVEID: CVE-2018-1904
DESCRIPTION: IBM WebSphere Application Server could allow remote attackers to
execute arbitrary Java code through an administrative client class with a
serialized object from untrusted sources.
CVSS Base Score: 8.1
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/
152533
for the current score

CVEID: CVE-2018-1840
DESCRIPTION: IBM WebSphere Application Server could allow a remote attacker to
gain elevated privileges on the system, caused when a security domain is
configured to use a federated repository other than global federated repository
and then migrated to a newer release of WebSphere Application Server.
CVSS Base Score: 6
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/
150813
for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:L/UI:N/S:C/C:L/I:L/A:L)
   
CVEID: CVE-2018-1901
DESCRIPTION: IBM WebSphere Application Server could allow a remote attacker to
temporarily gain elevated privileges on the system, caused by incorrect cached
value being used.

DESCRIPTION: IBM WebSphere Application Server Admin Console is vulnerable to
cross-site request forgery, caused by improper validation of user-supplied
input. By persuading a user to visit a malicious URL, a remote attacker could
send a specially-crafted request. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability
to perform CSRF attack and update available applications.
CVSS Base Score: 4.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/
152992
for the current score

Remediation/Fixes

The IBM Jazz Team Server based Applications bundle different versions of IBM
WebSphere Application Server with the available versions of the products, and
in addition to the bundled version some previous versions of WAS are also
supported. Information about multiple security vulnerabilities affecting WAS
has been published in the Security Bulletins below.

For CLM applications version 5.0 to 6.0.6 review each of the Security Bulletins
to determine if your WAS version is affected and the required remediation:

Security Bulletin: Potential Remote code execution vulnerability in WebSphere
Application Server (CVE-2018-1904)

Security Bulletin: Potential Privilege escalation vulnerability in WebSphere
Application Server (CVE-2018-1840)
  
Security Bulletin: Potential Privilege Escalation Vulnerability in WebSphere
Application Server (CVE-2018-1901)
  
Security Bulletin: Potential cross-site request forgery in WebSphere
Application Server Admin Console (CVE-2018-1926)
  
Security Bulletin: Potential information disclosure in WebSphere Application
Server (CVE-2018-1957)
   

Workarounds and Mitigations
