Synopsis :

The remote application server may be affected by multiple
vulnerabilities.

Description :

IBM WebSphere Application Server 8.5 before Fix Pack 1 appears to be
running on the remote host and is, therefore, potentially affected by
the following vulnerabilities :

- An input validation error exists related to the 'Eclipse
Help System' that can allow arbitrary redirect responses
to HTTP requests. (CVE-2012-2159, PM66410)

- Several errors exist related to SSL/TLS that can allow
an attacker to carry out denial of service attacks
against the application. (CVE-2012-2190, CVE-2012-2191,
PM66218)

- Unspecified cross-site scripting issues exist related to
the administrative console. (CVE-2012-3293, PM60839)

- An unspecified error in the 'ISC Console' can allow a
remote attacker to take over a valid user's session.
(CVE-2012-3304, PM54356)

- An unspecified directory traversal error exists that
can allow remote attackers to overwrite files outside
the application's deployment directory. (CVE-2012-3305,
PM62467)

- When multi-domain support is enabled, the application
does not properly purge passwords from the
authentication cache. (CVE-2012-3306, PM66514)

- An error exists related to 'Federated Repositories',
'IIOP' connections, 'CBIND' checking and 'Optimized
Local Adapters' that can allow a remote attacker to
bypass security restrictions. Note that this issue
affects the application when running on z/OS.
(CVE-2012-3311, PM61388)

- The fix contained in PM44303 contains an error that
can allow an authenticated attacker to bypass security
restrictions and gain administrative access to the
application. (CVE-2012-3325, PM71296)

- A request validation error exists related to the proxy
server component that can allow a remote attacker to
cause the proxy status to be reported as disabled thus
denying applications access to the proxy.
(CVE-2012-3330, PM71319)

- A request validation error exists related to the
'Liberty Profile' and 'JAX-RS' that can allow a remote
attacker to elevate privileges. (CVE-2012-4850, PM67082)

- A user-supplied input validation error exists related
to the 'Liberty Profile' that can allow cross-site
scripting attacks to be carried out. (CVE-2012-4851,
PM68643)

- A user-supplied input validation error exists that can
allow cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attacks to be
carried out. (CVE-2012-4853, PM62920)
