Synopsis :

The remote application server is affected by an information
disclosure vulnerability.

Description :

IBM WebSphere Application Server 6.1 before Fix Pack 9 appears to be
running on the remote host. As such, it is reportedly affected by an
information disclosure vulnerability because the application sends
response data intended for a different request in certain
circumstances after a closed connection error. (PK41446)
