The remote web server is configured insecurely, leaving it vulnerable
to security bypass attacks.
The version of JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) running on
the remote host allows unauthenticated access to certain documents
under the '/web-console' directory. This is due to a misconfiguration
in 'web.xml' that only requires authentication for GET and POST
requests. Specifying a different command such as HEAD, DELETE or PUT
causes the default GET handler to be used without authentication.
A remote attacker can exploit this to obtain sensitive information
without providing authentication.
This version of JBoss EAP likely has other vulnerabilities, though
Nessus has not checked for those issues.
