IBM WebSphere Dashboard Framework file access
|ibm-websphere-cve20136728-file-access (89283)||Medium Risk|
WebSphere Dashboard Framework contains a vulnerability in a charting feature used to access and delete generated images in a temporary folder. In general this charting feature would be protected by security constraints that limit its use to authenticated users. However, it is possible that customers may misconfigure these security constraints allowing unauthenticated access to the feature. It's also possible that an authenticated yet malicious user could employ the feature to retrieve and delete files.
Refer to the appropriate IBM Security Bulletin for patch, upgrade or suggested workaround information. See References.
