IBM WebSphere Application Server 6.1 < Fix Pack 21 Multiple Flaws

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 35659


The remote application server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


IBM WebSphere Application Server 6.1 before Fix Pack 21 appears to be running on the remote host. As such, it is reportedly affected by multiple flaws :

- Provided Performance Monitoring Infrastructure (PMI) is enabled, it may be possible for a local attacker to obtain sensitive information through 'Systemout.log' and 'ffdc' files that are written by PerfServlet.

- SSL Configuration settings attribute 'Security Level' does not correctly enforce the level of encryption used by the application server. (PK63182)


If using WebSphere Application Server, apply Fix Pack 21 ( or later.

Otherwise, if using embedded WebSphere Application Server packaged with Tivoli Directory Server, apply the latest recommended eWAS fix pack.
