critical Nessus Plugin ID 83290
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote application server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The IBM WebSphere Application Server running on the remote host is version 6.1.0.47 / 7.0.0.37 / 8.0.0.10 / 8.5.5.5 or prior. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the SNMP component due to improper handling of configuration data. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this disclose sensitive information. (CVE-2015-0174)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the liberty profile due to improper handling of authData elements. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2015-0175)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the liberty profile that is triggered when the run-as user for EJB is not honored under multi-threaded race conditions. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2015-1882)

- A flaw exists that allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code by connecting to a management port using a specific sequence of instructions. (CVE-2015-1920)

Solution

Apply Interim Fix PI38302.
