Synopsis :

The remote Windows host has a service installed that does not encrypt
usernames and passwords submitted to web pages.

Description :

The IBM WebSphere MQ server installed on the remote Windows host is
version 6.x prior to 6.0.2.9 or version 7.x prior to 7.0.1.1. It is,
therefore, affected by a security weakness where usernames and
passwords are sent as cleartext in parameter fields, thus allowing a
remote attacker to obtain sensitive information by sniffing the
networking traffic.
