Description

The version of IBM WebSphere application server running on the remote host is potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

  • An insecure file permission vulnerability that only affects WebSphere Application Server running on the IBM i platform. A local attacker may be able to exploit this issue to obtain potentially sensitive information or modify files in certain directories. (CVE-2011-1376)

  • Cross-site scripting and other unspecified vulnerabilities affecting the z/OS platform.
