Description

IBM WebSphere Application Server 6.1 before Fix Pack 27 appears to be running on the remote host. As such, it is reportedly affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

  • The Eclipse help system included with WebSphere Application Server is affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability. (PK78917)

  • It may be possible to bypass security restrictions using a specially crafted HTTP HEAD method. (PK83258)

  • New applications deployed in WebSphere Application Server for z/OS prior to 1.8 are saved on the file system with insecure privileges resulting in disclosure of sensitive information. (PK83308)

  • If JAAS-J2C Authentication Data is configured using wsadmin scripts, the password value may appear in FFDC logs. (PK86137)

  • Apache APR-util is affected by a denial of service issue. (PK88341)

  • Due to an error in expat XML parser, APR-util is affected by a denial of service issue. (PK88342)

  • It may be possible to trigger a denial of service attack due to errors in Fix Packs 6.1.0.23 and 6.1.0.25. (PK91709)
