From remote

Impact:

Cross Site Scripting, Exposure of sensitive information, DoS

Solution Status:

Vendor Patch

CVE Reference(s):

Description


Some vulnerabilities have been reported in IBM WebSphere Application Server, which can be exploited by malicious users to disclose potentially sensitive information or cause a DoS (Denial of Service), and by malicious people to potentially disclose sensitive information, conduct cross-site scripting and cross-site request forgery attacks, or cause a DoS.

1) Some vulnerabilities in APR-util can be exploited by malicious users and malicious people to disclose potentially sensitive information or cause a DoS.

For more information:
SA35284

2) An unspecified error in the "Apr_xml_*" interface can be exploited to cause a DoS.

3) The administrative console allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing any validity checks to verify the requests. This can be exploited to perform normally restricted actions if a logged-in user visits a malicious web site.

4) An error in the included web server can be exploited to e.g. cause a high CPU load via specially crafted HTTP requests.

For more information:
SA35781

5) Some vulnerabilities in IBM HTTP Server can be exploited by malicious users and malicious people to disclose potentially sensitive information or cause a DoS (Denial of Service).

For more information:
SA36619
SA37050

6) Input passed to the administrative console is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.

7) An error in the Java Naming and Directory Interface (JNDI) can be exploited to query UserRegistry objects.
