IBM WebSphere < 6.0.2.3 Authentication Bypass

Low

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a flaw that allows attackers to retrieve sensitive files or data.

Description

The remote WebSphere web server is vulnerable to an information leak. There is a flaw in the way that WebSphere processes filtered requests which end with a '/'. For instance, if the file test.jsp required authentication, an attacker could simply request test.jsp/ and retrieve the page.

Solution

Upgrade to version 6.0.2.3 or higher.
