IBM WebSphere Application Server 7.0 < Fix Pack 27 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 64097


The remote application server may be affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


IBM WebSphere Application Server 7.0 before Fix Pack 27 appears to be running on the remote host. It is, therefore, potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A request validation error exists related to the proxy server component that could allow a remote attacker to cause the proxy status to be reported as disabled, thus denying applications access to the proxy.
(CVE-2012-3330, PM71319)

- A user-supplied input validation error exists that could allow cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attacks to be carried out. (CVE-2012-4853, PM62920)

- Unspecified errors exist related to the administration console that could allow cross-site scripting attacks.
(CVE-2013-0458, CVE-2013-0459, CVE-2013-0460, PM71139, PM72536, PM72275)

- An unspecified error exists related to the administration console for 'virtual member manager' (VMM) that can allow cross-site scripting.
(CVE-2013-0461, PM71389)


If using WebSphere Application Server, apply Fix Pack 27 ( or later.

Otherwise, if using embedded WebSphere Application Server packaged with Tivoli Directory Server, contact the vendor for more information as IBM currently has not a published fix pack 27 for that.
