Today we published a security notice and fixes to address a medium risk, publicly known vulnerability in CA SiteMinder. The vulnerability, CVE-2011-4054,
occurs due to insufficient validation of postpreservationdata parameter input
utilized in the login.fcc form. A malicious user can submit a specially crafted
request to effectively hijack a victim’s browser. Vulnerability details were first publicized by CERT on 2011-12-07 in US-CERT Vulnerability Note VU#713012 – CA Siteminder login.fcc form xss vulnerability. We are not aware of any active exploitation, and due to the lower risk, we do not anticipate any widespread exploitation. Note that fixes are currently available only for SiteMinder R12. Fixes for SiteMinder R6 should be available in January 2012.
