High Nessus Plugin ID 102586
SynopsisThe remote web application server is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.
DescriptionThe IBM WebSphere Application Server running on the remote host is version 7.0.0.x prior to 184.108.40.206, 8.0.0.x prior to 220.127.116.11, 8.5.x prior to 18.104.22.168, or 9.0.0.x prior to 22.214.171.124. It is, therefore, affected by an input validation flaw in SOAP connectors that allows a remote user to cause serialized objects to run, consuming excessive resources on the target system.
SolutionApply IBM WebSphere Application Server version 7.0 Fix Pack 43 (126.96.36.199) / 8.0 Fix Pack 14 (188.8.131.52) (targeted availability 16 October 2017) / 8.5 Fix Pack 12 (184.108.40.206) / 9.0 Fix Pack 4 (220.127.116.11) or later. Alternatively, upgrade to the minimal fix pack levels required by the interim fix and then apply Interim Fix PI73519.
