Description

The IBM WebSphere Application Server running on the remote host is version 7.0.0.0 through 7.0.0.45, 8.0.0.0 through 8.0.0.15, or 8.5.x prior to 8.5.5.16. It is, therefore, affected by an unspecified spoofing vulnerability. A remote, unauthenticated attacker could exploit this to conduct spoofing attacks.
