New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote Windows host has a service installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of IBM WebSphere MQ server is version 7.1 without Fix Pack 7.1.0.2 or 7.5 without Fix Pack 7.5.0.1. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists in Global Security Kit (GSkit) due to a failure to properly validate data when the 'protection mechanism' is executed against an SSL CBC timing attack.
A remote attacker, using crafted values in the TLS Record Layer, can exploit this to cause a denial of service.
(CVE-2012-2191)

- A flaw exists in Global Security Kit (GSkit) due to a failure to properly verify certificates, which can allow a remote attacker to conduct a man-in-the-middle attack.
(CVE-2012-2203)

- An application can potentially put a sequence of large messages into the queue, causing a buffer to overflow in the queue manager. This can lead to a denial of service.
(CVE-2012-4863)

Solution

Apply fix pack 7.1.0.2 or later.
