* JBoss BPM Suite 6 is vulnerable to a reflected XSS via dashbuilder.
Remote attackers can entice authenticated users that have privileges to
access dashbuilder (usually admins) to click on links to
/dashbuilder/Controller containing malicious scripts. Successful
exploitation would allow execution of script code within the context of the
affected user. (CVE-2016-6343)
* It has been reported that CSRF tokens are not properly handled in JBoss
BPM suite dashbuilder. Old tokens generated during an active session can be
used to bypass CSRF protection. In addition, the tokens are sent in query
string so they can be exposed through the browser's history, referrers, web
logs, and other sources. Attackers may be able to obtain old tokens from
various sources in the network and perform CSRF attacks successfully.
These issues were discovered by Jeremy Choi (Red Hat Product Security
