What happened: An attacker stole the username and password belonging to a Comodo trusted partner and used the credentials to register nine SSL certificates for seven high-value domains, including Google, Skype, and Yahoo. An Iranian hacker takes credit for the attack -- and a later attack on DigiNotar -- on Pastebin.

Losses: Nine certificates for high-quality domains and the unquestioning trust that many users had in the system of certificate authorities.

Published: 2014-12-18
IBM Security Access Manager for Mobile 8.x before 8.0.1 and Security Access Manager for Web 7.x before 7.0.0 FP10 and 8.x before 8.0.1 allow remote attackers to conduct clickjacking attacks via a crafted web site.

CVE-2014-6077

Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerability in IBM Security Access Manager for Mobile 8.x before 8.0.1 and Security Access Manager for Web 7.x before 7.0.0 FP10 and 8.x before 8.0.1 allows remote attackers to hijack the authentication of arbitrary users for requests that insert XSS sequences.

IBM Security Access Manager for Mobile 8.x before 8.0.1 and Security Access Manager for Web 7.x before 7.0.0 FP10 and 8.x before 8.0.1 do not have a lockout period after invalid login attempts, which makes it easier for remote attackers to obtain admin access via a brute-force attack.
