IBM WebSphere Application Server 8.0 < 126.96.36.199 / 8.5 < 188.8.131.52 Administrative Console Information Disclosure
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 100221
SynopsisA web application server running on the remote host is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability
DescriptionThe version of IBM WebSphere Application Server running on the remote host is 8.0 prior to 184.108.40.206 or 8.5 prior to 220.127.116.11. It is, therefore, affected by an unspecified flaw in the administrative console due to weaker than expected security. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to disclose sensitive information or to gain unauthorized access to the administrative console.
SolutionApply IBM WebSphere Application Server version 8.0 Fix Pack 14 (18.104.22.168) / 8.5 Fix Pack 12 (22.214.171.124) or later. Note that the Fix Packs are scheduled for release in Q3 or Q4 2017; however, IBM has released Interim Fix PI76088 to address this vulnerability until the Fix Packs are released.
