New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The remote application server may be affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


IBM WebSphere Application Server 8.0 before Fix Pack 1 appears to be running on the remote host and is potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An open redirect vulnerability exists related to the 'logoutExitPage' parameter. This can allow remote attackers to trick users into requesting unintended URLs. (PM35701)

- The administrative console can display a stack trace under unspecified circumstances and can disclose potentially sensitive information to local users.

- An unspecified error exists that can allow cross-site request forgery attacks. (PM36734)

- A token verification error exists in the bundled OpenSAML library. This error can allow an attacker to bypass security controls with an XML signature wrapping attack via SOAP messages. (PM43254)

- A directory traversal attack is possible via unspecified parameters in the 'help' servlet. (PM45322)

- The JavaServer Faces (JSF) application functionality could allow a remote attacker to read files because it fails to properly handle requests. (PM45992)

- The HTTP server contains an error in the 'ByteRange' filter and can allow denial of service attacks when processing malicious requests. (PM46234)
