IBM WebSphere Application Server 7.0 < 7.0.0.45 / 8.0 < 8.0.0.14 / 8.5 < 8.5.5.12 / 9.0 < 9.0.0.5 Insecure File Permissions (PI79343)

This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote web application server is affected by an insecure
file permissions flaw.

Description :

The version of IBM WebSphere Application Server running on the remote
host is 7.0 prior to 7.0.0.45, 8.0 prior to 8.0.0.14, 8.5 prior to
8.5.5.12, or 9.0 prior to 9.0.0.5. It is, therefore, affected by an
insecure permissions flaw after custom startup scripts are run. The
custom startup script does not pull the umask settings in
server.xml, which may result in insecure file permissions and allows
a local attacker to gain access to certain log files.
