Description

IBM WebSphere Application Server 8.0 before Fix Pack 2 appears to be running on the remote host and is potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

  • An unspecified cross-site scripting issue exists related to the 'Web 2.0 Messaging service'. (PM37840)

  • A security exposure when using WS-Security could result in a user gaining elevated privileges in applications using JAX-WS. (PM43585 / CVE-2011-1377)

  • Insecure file permissions are applied to the files in the '$WAS_HOME/systemapps/isclite.ear' and '$WAS_HOME/bin/client_ffdc' directories. These permissions can allow a local attacker to read or write files in those directories. Note this issue only affects the application on the IBM i operating system. (PM49712)

  • An error exists in the class 'javax.naming.directory.AttributeInUseException' and can allow old passwords to still provide access. This error is triggered when passwords are updated by using IBM Tivoli Directory Server. (PM52049)
