Synopsis :

The remote application server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

IBM WebSphere Application Server 7.0 before Fix Pack 11 appears to be
running on the remote host. As such, it is reportedly affected by the
following vulnerabilities :

- WS-Security processing problems with PKIPath and
PKCS#7 tokens could lead to a security bypass
vulnerability. (PK96427)

- An OutOfMemory condition related to the
Deployment Manager and nodeagent could lead to a
denial of service. (PM05663)

- The Web Container does not properly handle long
filenames, which may cause it to respond with the
incorrect file, resulting in the disclosure of
potentially sensitive information. (PM06111)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists when the
'-trace' option (aka debugging mode) is enabled since
WAS executes debugging statements that print string
representations of unspecified objects. (PM06839)

- An error occurs when the Web Contained calls
response.sendRedirect with a Transfer-Encoding:
chunked, which could cause a denial of service.
(PM08760)

- An information disclosure vulnerability in SIP logging
could allow a local, authenticated attacker to gain
access to sensitive information. (PM08892)

- A possible NullPointerException when handling large
chunked gzip encoded data. (PM08894)

- A possible link injection vulnerability. (PM09250)

- The web server can fail during an upload over SSL that
is larger than 2 GB. (PM10270)

- Administration console sensitive information might appear in
addNode.log when -trace option enabled. (PM10684)

- Cross-site scripting and URL injection vulnerability
in admin console. (PM11778)

Solution :

If using WebSphere Application Server, apply Fix Pack 11 (7.0.0.11) or
later.

Otherwise, if using embedded WebSphere Application Server packaged with
Tivoli Directory Server, apply the latest recommended eWAS fix pack.
