IBM Rational ClearQuest 7.1.x < 126.96.36.199 / 8.0.0.x < 188.8.131.52 GSKit Spoofing (credentialed check)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 62786
SynopsisThe remote host has software installed that is affected by a spoofing vulnerability.
DescriptionThe remote host has a version of IBM Rational ClearQuest 7.1.x prior to 184.108.40.206 / 8.0.0.x prior to 220.127.116.11 installed. It is, therefore, affected by a spoofing vulnerability related to the included Global Security Kit (GSKit) and certificate objects.
The GSKit does not enforce file integrity of the PKCS #12 files it uses and is vulnerable to SSL server spoofing because the insertion of arbitrary CA certificates is possible.
Note that deployments not using LDAP are not affected and that PKCS #12 is not the default format used by ClearQuest.
SolutionUpgrade to IBM Rational ClearQuest 18.104.22.168 / 22.214.171.124 or later.
