Summary

IBM Security Identity Manager is vulnerable to Cross-Site Request Forgery. 
Vulnerability Details

CVEID: CVE-2014-6168

DESCRIPTION: IBM Security Identity Manager is vulnerable to cross-site request
forgery, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input. By persuading 
an authenticated user to visit a malicious Web site, a remote attacker could 
send a malformed HTTP request. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to
perform cross-site scripting attacks, Web cache poisoning, and other malicious
activities.

The vulnerability can be accessed from a remote network, is of medium 
complexity, and requires authentication. Successful exploit will not 
compromise the confidentiality of the system, could partially compromise the 
integrity of the system, and will not compromise the accessibility of the 
system.
