SR-D28060 · Issue 505637

Cross-site scripting protection added to Pega App Studio Spaces

Resolved in Pega Version 8.2.4

Ajax Request's callback success method has a mechanism to process the response object's HTML responseText, initiate and modify the changeTracker changes, and eventually call renderUI to render the DOM. However, the response object sometimes may return a different type (JSON) that may expose cross-site scripting vulnerabilities. To improve security for the Pega App Studio, the system will process the Ajax request's response text only if the response date type is not JSON by accepting a flag in the callback object passed by the caller.

SR-D30215 · Issue 503682

SR-D25972 · Issue 501482

Handling added for custom error message in post-authentication activity

Resolved in Pega Version 8.2.4

The error message in post authentication activity was always appearing as 'Login terminated because a post-authentication activity or policy failed' irrespective of the actual message being conditionally set in the activity based on post authentication logic. Investigation showed that the parameter page in the SSO post-authentication activity was not being passed to the 'pzShowAuthPolicyError' activity due to the post-authentication activity executing in authenticated context whereas the HTML fragment executed in the un-authenticated context. In order to support this use, post-authentication activity will set the error message on a predefined property and propagate that to the HTML fragment by appending the error message as a query parameter in the redirect exception URL post-authentication failure.

SR-D23862 · Issue 503896

Corrected test connection for LDAP AuthService using keystore

Resolved in Pega Version 8.2.4

When using a AuthService rule defined for LDAP using ldaps:// and a KeyStore rule that was defined to reference a local file in the server, the Test Connection button on the AuthService rule did not work and generated the following exception: "com.pega.apache.commons.httpclient.contrib.ssl.AuthSSLInitializationError: I/O error reading keystore/truststore file: null". Investigation showed that file reference keystore did not work with an LDAPS test connection because while run time used the LDAPVerifyCredentials activity, the design time validation used the activity “ValidateInfrastructure” which did not have the required code to support file reference keystore. This has been corrected.

SR-D21803 · Issue 502130

Cross-site scripting protection added for embedded portal URI

Resolved in Pega Version 8.2.4

The URI used in the top window of embedded portals has been encoded to prevent DOM based cross-site scripting.

SR-D29485 · Issue 503511

Enhancement added to modify URL encryption for load testing

Resolved in Pega Version 8.2.4

An enhancement has been added which allows conditionally modifying URL encryption for load testing. This uses the flag crypto/useportablecipherforurlencryption: if true, a portable hardcoded key is used to encrypt the URLs and if false, a dynamically generated key per thread/requestor is used to encrypt the URL.

SR-D38581 · Issue 504775

Removed unnecessary cross-site scripting filtering on paragraph rule

Resolved in Pega Version 8.2.4

When a link was set in a paragraph rule, the target option was removed in the returned layout structure. This was traced to unnecessary XSS filtering which has now been removed.

SR-D86011 · Issue 548152

Browser fingerprint validation issue resolved

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.3

After upgrade, Pega logoff was happening automatically within five minutes while using Microsoft Internet Explorer. This was traced to the COSMOS-based portal in Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 generating different hashes for different parts of the screen, causing a "Browser fingerprint validation failed" error because of the pzBFP token mismatch. To resolve this, an update has been made to exclude the graphic components for calculation of browserfingerprint.

SR-D96395 · Issue 555117

CDK key loading modified for better database compatibility

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.3

Users were unable to log on to the system and received the error "There has been an issue; please consult your system administrator." Investigation showed the log errors stating "(dataencryption.DataKeyProvider) ERROR localhost - Could not get CDK from systemKeyManagementCache - System CDK is null". This was an issue specific to the MS SQL Server database when there were 6 or more CDKs in the database: CDK keys are loaded from database into Cache using an SQL statement which had the ORDER clause. By default, the ORDER clause treats NULL values differently on different databases, and this caused MS SQL databases to not load a necessary CDK key. To resolve this, the SQL query has been modified so the result will be the same for all supported daatbases (Oracle, Postgres & MS SQL Server).
