IBM WebSphere MQ 7.1 < 22.214.171.124 / 7.5 < 126.96.36.199 Multiple Vulnerabilities
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 73103
SynopsisThe remote Windows host has a service installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe version of IBM WebSphere MQ server 7.1 / 7.5 installed on the remote Windows host is missing fix pack 188.8.131.52 / 184.108.40.206 or later. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to a failure to sanitize user-supplied input in the MQ Telemetry component, resulting in path traversal outside of a restricted path. A remote attacker can exploit this, using a URI request, to view any file readable by the 'mqm' user. (CVE-2013-4054)
- An unspecified information disclosure vulnerability exists in IBM Java related to the Libraries component.
A remote attacker can exploit this to obtain sensitive information. (CVE-2013-5780)
Note that the fix list for fix pack 220.127.116.11 shows that several APARs have a security or integrity exposure (IC93986, IC94287, IC94453, IC94752, IC97555). It is not known whether any of these APARs correspond with the information disclosure vulnerability in the Telemetry component or to what extent they represent actual security issues.
SolutionApply fix pack 18.104.22.168 / 22.214.171.124 or later.
