IBM WebSphere MQ 7.1 < 22.214.171.124 / 7.5 < 126.96.36.199 / 8.0 < 188.8.131.52 Multiple Vulnerabilities
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 93049
SynopsisA message queuing service installed on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version, the IBM WebSphere MQ server installed on the remote Windows host is version 7.1 without fix pack 184.108.40.206, 7.5 without fix pack 220.127.116.11, or 8.0 without fix pack 18.104.22.168. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- A buffer overflow condition exists in IBM JVM due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code under limited circumstances.
- An unspecified flaw exists in the JCE subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to disclose potentially sensitive information. (CVE-2016-3426)
- An unspecified flaw exists in the JMX subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to impact confidentiality, integrity, and availability. No other details are available. (CVE-2016-3427)
SolutionApply the appropriate fix pack according to the vendor advisory.
Alternatively, interim fix IT14908 can also be applied to mitigate these vulnerabilities if a fix pack is not available.
