  • TIBCO WebFOCUS Reporting Server versions 8207.27.0 and below

The following components are affected:

Description

The components listed above contain easily exploitable Stored and Reflected Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities that allow a low privileged attacker to social engineer a legitimate user with network access to execute scripts targeting the affected system or the victim's local system. A successful attack using this vulnerability requires human interaction from a person other than the attacker.

Impact

In the worst case, if the victim is a privileged administrator, successful execution of these vulnerabilities can result in an attacker gaining full administrative access to the affected system or the victim's local system.
