Security Bulletin: Vulnerability in IBM WebSphere Application Server affects WebSphere Process Server and WebSphere Process Server Hypervisor Editions (CVE-2015-0138)

Description

## Summary The “FREAK: Factoring Attack on RSA-EXPORT keys" TLS/SSL client and server vulnerability affects IBM WebSphere Application Server Full Profile (and IBM WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition) that is used by WebSphere Process Server (and WebSphere Process Server Hypervisor Editions). ## Vulnerability Details **CVEID:** [_CVE-2015-0138_](<https://vulners.com/cve/CVE-2015-0138>) **DESCRIPTION:** A vulnerability in various IBM SSL/TLS implementations could allow a remote attacker to downgrade the security of certain SSL/TLS connections. An IBM SSL/TLS client implementation could accept the use of an RSA temporary key in a non-export RSA key exchange ciphersuite. This could allow a remote attacker using man-in-the-middle techniques to facilitate brute-force decryption of TLS/SSL traffic between vulnerable clients and servers. This vulnerability is also known as the FREAK attack. CVSS Base Score: 4.3 CVSS Temporal Score: See [_http://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/#/vulnerabilities/100691_](<http://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/#/vulnerabilities/100691>) for the current score CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N) ## Affected Products and Versions * WebSphere Process Server V7.0 * WebSphere Process Server Hypervisor Editions V6.2, V7.0 For earlier unsupported versions of the above products IBM recommends upgrading to a fixed, supported version of the products. ## Remediation/Fixes Please consult the security bulletin [Security Bulletin: Vulnerability with RSA Export Keys may affect IBM WebSphere Application Server (CVE-2015-0138)](<http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21698613>) for vulnerability details and information about fixes. ## Workarounds and Mitigations None ##
