IBM WebSphere Application Server 7.0 < 7.0.0.41 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is running an application server that is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

The remote host appears to be running IBM WebSphere Application Server 7.0 prior to 7.0.0.41. Such versions are potentially affected by multiple issues :

- A flaw exists allowing a reflected cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability due to a failure to properly validate output from the OAuth provider before returning it to users. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted URL, to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session within the security context of the hosting website. (CVE-2015-7417) - A flaw exists in the FIPS140-2 implementation that is related to an improper TLS configuration. This may allow an attacker with the ability to intercept network traffic (e.g. MitM, DNS cache poisoning) to disclose transmitted data. (CVE-2016-0306) - A flaw exists that is due to the program improperly setting the CSRFtoken cookie. This may allow an authenticated remote attacker to gain access to potentially sensitive information. (CVE-2016-0377) - An overflow condition exists that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. This may allow an authenticated remote attacker to cause a buffer overflow, potentially allowing them to bypass security restrictions and disclose sensitive information. (CVE-2016-0385)

Solution

Upgrade WebSphere Application Server to 7.0.0.41 or later.
