The remote application server may be affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

IBM WebSphere Application Server 7.0 before Fix Pack 25 appears to be
running on the remote host. As such, it is potentially affected by the
following vulnerabilities :

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)

can allow remote attackers to overwrite files outside
the application's deployment directory. (CVE-2012-3305,

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.
