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, 8.5.x prior to 8.5.5.16, or 9.0.0.x prior to 9.0.0.11. It is, therefore, affected by a potential information disclosure vulnerability. An improper TLS configuration could cause the IBM WebSphere Application Server to provider weaker than expected security. A remote attacker could exploit this to disclose sensitive information using a man in the middle attack.
