Description

IBM WebSphere Application Server 6.1 before Fix Pack 23 appears to be installed on the remote host. Such versions are reportedly affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

  • Provided an attacker has valid credentials, it may be possible to hijack an authenticated session. (PK66676)

  • It may be possible for a remote attacker to redirect users to arbitrary sites using ibm_security_logout servlet. (PK71126)

  • Under certain conditions it may be possible to access administrative console user sessions. (PK74966)

  • If APAR PK41002 has been applied, a vulnerability in the JAX-RPC WS-Security component could incorrectly validate 'UsernameToken'. (PK75992)

  • Sample applications shipped with IBM WebSphere Application Server are affected by cross-site scripting vulnerabilities. (PK76720)

  • The administrative console is affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability. (PK77505)

  • It may be possible for an attacker to read arbitrary application-specific war files. (PK81387)
