Description

IBM WebSphere Application Server 8.5 before Fix Pack 8.5.5.1 appears to be running on the remote host and is, therefore, potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

  • A flaw exists related to Apache Ant and file compression that could lead to denial of service conditions. (CVE-2012-2098 / PM90088)

  • Unspecified errors exist related to the administration console that could allow cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2013-0460 / PM72275, CVE-2013-5418 / PM96477, CVE-2013-5425 / PM93828)

  • Multiple errors exist related to the IBM Eclipse Help System that could allow cross-site scripting attacks and information disclosure attacks. (CVE-2013-0464, CVE-2013-0467, CVE-2013-0599 / PM89893)

  • An input validation flaw exists in the optional 'mod_rewrite' module in the included IBM HTTP Server that could allow arbitrary command execution via HTTP requests containing certain escape sequences. (CVE-2013-1862 / PM87808)

  • A flaw exists related to the optional 'mod_dav' module in the included IBM HTTP Server that could allow denial of service conditions. (CVE-2013-1896 / PM89996)

  • A user-supplied input validation error exists that could allow cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attacks to be carried out. (CVE-2013-3029 / PM88746)

  • User-supplied input validation errors exist related to the administrative console that could allow cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2013-4004 / PM81571, CVE-2013-4005 / PM88208)

  • An unspecified permissions error exists that could allow a local attacker to obtain sensitive information. Note this issue only affects the 'Liberty Profile'. (CVE-2013-4006 / PM90472)

  • An input validation error exists related to the UDDI Administrative console that could allow cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2013-4052 / PM91892)

  • An attacker may gain elevated privileges because of improper certificate checks. WS-Security and XML Digital Signatures must be enabled. (CVE-2013-4053 / PM90949)

  • An error exists related to incorrect Administration Security roles and migrations from version 6.1. (CVE-2013-5414 / PM92313)

  • Unspecified input validation errors exist that could allow cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2013-5417 / PM93323 and PM93944)
