Description

The IBM WebSphere Application Server running on the remote host is version 8.5.x prior to 8.5.5.18. It is, therefore, affected by a server-side request forgery vulnerability. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by sending a specially crafted request, to obtain sensitive data.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
