This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote application server may be affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

IBM WebSphere Application Server 7.0 before Fix Pack 23 appears to be
running on the remote host. As such, it is potentially affected by
the following vulnerabilities :

- A security exposure when using WS-Security could result
in a user gaining elevated privileges in applications
using JAX-RPC. (PM45181 / CVE-2011-1377)

- SSL client certificate authentication can be bypassed
when all of the following are true (PM52351) :

- SSL is enabled with 'SSLEnable'
- SSL client authentication is enabled with
'SSLClientAuth required_reset'. This is not enabled
by default. Also note, 'SSLClientAuth required' is
not affected.
- SSLv2 has not been disabled with
'SSLProtocolDisable SSLv2'
- 'SSLClientAuthRequire' is not enabled

- Unspecified cross-site scripting issues exist related to
the administrative console. (PM52274, PM53132)

- An error exists related to 'Application Snoop Servlet'
and missing access controls. This error can allow
sensitive information to be disclosed. (PM56183)

- An issue related to the weak randomization of Java hash
data structures can allow a remote attacker to cause a
denial of service with maliciously crafted POST requests.
(PM53930)
