Synopsis :

The remote application server may be affected by multiple
vulnerabilities.

Description :

IBM WebSphere Application Server 8.5 before Fix Pack 2 appears to be
running on the remote host and is, therefore, potentially affected by
the following vulnerabilities :

- The included Java SDK contains several errors that
affect the application directly. (CVE-2013-0169,
CVE-2013-0440, CVE-2013-0443)

- Input validation errors exist related to the
administration console that could allow cross-site
scripting attacks. (CVE-2013-0458 / PM71139,
CVE-2013-0461 / PM71389, CVE-2013-0542 / PM81846,
CVE-2013-0565 / PM83402)

- An input validation error exists related to the
administration console that could allow cross-site
scripting attacks. Note that this issue affects only
the application when running on z/OS operating systems.
(CVE-2013-0459 / PM72536)

- An unspecified error could allow security bypass for
authenticated users. (CVE-2013-0462 / PM76886 or
PM79937)

- An error exists related to 'WS-Security' and SOAP
message handling that could allow an attacker to spoof
message signatures. (CVE-2013-0482 / PM76582)

- An error exists related to authentication cookies that
could allow remote attackers to gain access to
restricted resources. Note this only affects the
application when running the 'Liberty Profile'.
(CVE-2013-0540 / PM81056)

- A buffer overflow error exists related to 'WebSphere
Identity Manger (WIM)' that could allow denial of
service attacks. (CVE-2013-0541 / PM74909)

- An unspecified error could allow security bypass, thus
allowing remote attackers access to restricted resources
on HP, Linux and Solaris hosts.
(CVE-2013-0543 / PM75582)

- An unspecified error related to the administration
console could allow directory traversal attacks on
Unix and Linux hosts. (CVE-2013-0544 / PM82468)
