IBM WebSphere MQ 7.1 < MQ SVRCONN Channels Security Configuration Bypass

medium Nessus Plugin ID 62120
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Windows host has a service installed that is affected by a security bypass vulnerability.


The version of IBM WebSphere MQ server 7.1 installed on the remote Windows host is missing fix pack or later. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability where client applications can bypass the security configuration setup on an MQ SVRCONN channel, allowing unauthorized users access to the queue manager.


Apply fix pack or later.
