Description

IBM WebSphere Application Server 6.1 before Fix Pack 15 appears to be running on the remote host. As such, it is reportedly affected by the following vulnerabilities :

  • There is an as-yet unspecified security exposure in wsadmin (PK45726).

  • Sensitive information might appear in plaintext in the http_plugin.log file (PK48785).

  • There is an as-yet unspecified potential security exposure in the 'PropFilePasswordEncoder' utility (PK52709).

  • There is an as-yet unspecified potential security exposure with 'serveServletsByClassnameEnabled' (PK52059).

  • Sensitive information may appear in plaintext in startserver.log (PK53198).

  • If Fix Pack 9 has been installed, attackers can perform an internal application hashtable login by either not providing a password or providing an empty password when the JAAS Login functionality is enabled. (PK54565)
