IBM WebSphere Application Server 8.0 < Fix Pack 5 Multiple Vulnerabilities

This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote application server may be affected by multiple
vulnerabilities.

Description :

IBM WebSphere Application Server 8.0 before Fix Pack 5 appears to be
running on the remote host. It is, therefore, potentially affected by
the following vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified error exists related to the
Administrative Console that can allow an attacker to
hijack sessions. (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 for
IIOP connections, Optimized Local Adapters and CBIND
checking that can allow a local attacker to access or
modify arbitrary files. Note this issue only affects the
application when hosted 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 could 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)
