Request to changing error message in ud agent

The ucmdb version is 10.33.

The client thinks that different error pages appear depending on the presence or absence of the web page, which is vulnerable to security in ud agent.

So the client wants to change the error message to be consistent regardless of whether the page exists or not.

Please refer to the attachement for details.

I chatted for awhile with our experts.  They did indicate that version 10.33 experiences the problems you describe.

However, more recent versions of CMS now react differently.  I have access to our release from May 2019, and I can confirm I see this improved behavior from that version, as well as the most recent version 2020.05 (so I assume it’s the same for all versions in between).

For example

For normal pages like ucmdb-ui or ucmdb-browser if url is not ok it will redirect to login page.  If one accesses :

  • https::/cms-server:8443/ucmdb-browser/cvcxvcxlogin_padfdfdge.jsp?forwarURlForLoginPageParam=%2Fucmdb-ui%2Flogin_page333.jspà  basically invalid page, response code is 200 and redirected to login page
  • https::/cms-server:8443/ucmdb-browser/ucmdb_browser/asdasdasdas2232  à as above it returns 200 and redirects to login
  • https::/cms-server:8443/ucmdb-browser/  is the normal login so again 200
  • https::/cms-server:8443/ucmdb-ui/login_page.jsp is old applet login and returns 200
  • https::/cms-server:8443/ucmdb-ui/login_pa3434ge.jsp  returns 302 (found) and redirects to login page
  • https::/cms-server:8443/ucmdb-docs/docs/eng/doc_lib/Content/testjsp    (not valid )  or https::/cms-server:8443/ucmdb-docs/docs/eng/doc_lib/  (valid)  both return 401 now if not authenticated

At this point, we would not go back and resolve this in 10.33 as the fix for the customer is to upgrade to one of the later versions.
