The remote application server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The IBM WebSphere Application Server running on the remote host is version 7.0 prior to Fix Pack 37. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A man-in-the-middle (MitM) information disclosure vulnerability known as POODLE. The vulnerability is due to the way SSL 3.0 handles padding bytes when decrypting messages encrypted using block ciphers in cipher block chaining (CBC) mode. MitM attackers can decrypt a selected byte of a cipher text in as few as 256 tries if they are able to force a victim application to repeatedly send the same data over newly created SSL 3.0 connections. (CVE-2014-3566 / PI27101)

- An input validation error exists related to session input using URL rewriting that can allow cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2014-6167 / PI23819)

- An error exists related to the administrative console that can allow 'click-jacking' attacks.
(CVE-2014-6174 / PI27152)

- Multiple errors exist in the bundled IBM Java SDK. These errors are corrected by the October 2014 IBM Java SDK updates. (CVE-2014-6457, CVE-2014-6512, CVE-2014-6558 / PI27101)

- Multiple errors exist in the bundled IBM Java SDK. These errors are corrected by the January 2015 IBM Java SDK updates. (CVE-2014-6593, CVE-2015-0400, CVE-2015-0410) / PI33407
