Synopsis :

The remote web application server is affected by an information
disclosure vulnerability.

Description :

The version of the IBM WebSphere Application Server running on the
remote host is 7.0 prior to 7.0.0.43, 8.0 prior to 8.0.0.13, or 8.5
prior to 8.5.5.10. It is, therefore, affected by an information
disclosure vulnerability in the Administrative Console due to
improperly setting the CSRFtoken cookie. An authenticated, remote
attacker can exploit this to disclose sensitive information.
