New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 3.2
SynopsisThe remote web server is affected by a security feature bypass vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its banner, the version of IBM HTTP Server running on the remote host is affected by a security feature bypass vulnerability, known as Bar Mitzvah, due to improper combination of state data with key data by the RC4 cipher algorithm during the initialization phase.
A man-in-the-middle attacker can exploit this, via a brute-force attack using LSB values, to decrypt the traffic.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to IBM HTTP Server 220.127.116.11 / 18.104.22.168 / or 22.214.171.124 or later.
