The remote application server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


IBM WebSphere Application Server 6.1 before Fix Pack 33 appears to be running on the remote host. As such, it is reportedly affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified cross-site scripting vulnerability exists in the Administration Console. (PM09250, PM11778)

- An unspecified error exists when a Java API for XML Web Services (JAX-WS) application with the WS-Security policy specifies a Time Stamp value. (PM16014 / PM08360)

- Sensitive information is stored by 'ceiDbPasswordDefaulter' in the '<WAS_HOME>/logs/managedprofiles/*_create.log file.

- When security tracing is enabled, it is possible for a NullPointerException to be thrown when calling a logout on a LoginContext. (PM02636)


If using WebSphere Application Server, apply Fix Pack 33 ( or later.

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