Description

The version of IBM WebSphere Portal installed on the remote host is 8.5.0 prior to 8.5.0 CF06. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

  • An buffer overflow flaw exists in the Outside In Filters subcomponent due to 'ibpsd2.dll' not properly validating user-supplied input in PSD files. An attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-0493)

  • An unspecified flaw exists in the Remote Document Conversion Service (DCS) that allows a remote attacker to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2015-1886)

  • A flaw exists when handling a specially crafted request that allows a remote attacker to use too many available resources, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2015-1899)

  • A flaw exists that allows a reflected cross-site scripting attack due to a failure to validate input before returning it back to the user. A remote attacker, using a crafted URL, can exploit this to execute code or HTML within the user's browser. (CVE-2015-1908, CVE-2015-1944)

  • A cross-site scripting vulnerability exists in the Active Content Filtering component due to improperly validating user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit this by creating a specially crafted URL designed to execute script code in the victim's web browser. (CVE-2015-1917)

  • A flaw exists that allows a cross-site redirection attack due to a failure to validate certain unspecified input before returning it to the user. An attacker, using specially crafted URL, can exploit this to redirect victims to a website of the attacker's own choosing. (CVE-2015-1921)

  • An unspecified flaw exists that is trigged when handling Portal requests. A remote attacker can exploit this to cause a consumption of CPU resources, resulting in a denial of service condition. (CVE-2015-1943)
