This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote application server may be affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

IBM WebSphere Application Server 6.1 before Fix Pack 45 appears to be
running on the remote host. As such, it is potentially affected by
the following vulnerabilities :

- An error exists related to 'Application Snoop Servlet'
and missing access controls. This error can allow
sensitive information to be disclosed. Note that
exploiting this issue requires that the default
'Application Snoop Servlet' be installed and running.
(CVE-2012-2170, PM56183)

- 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,

- 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,

- 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)
