New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 3.6
SynopsisThe remote Windows host has a service installed that does not encrypt usernames and passwords submitted to web pages.
DescriptionThe IBM WebSphere MQ server installed on the remote Windows host is version 6.x prior to 188.8.131.52 or version 7.x prior to 184.108.40.206. It is, therefore, affected by a security weakness where usernames and passwords are sent as cleartext in parameter fields, thus allowing a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information by sniffing the networking traffic.
SolutionUpgrade to WebSphere MQ 220.127.116.11 / 18.104.22.168 or later.
