Some vulnerabilities have been reported in IBM WebSphere Application Server, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to potentially disclose sensitive information and by malicious people to disclose potentially sensitive information, manipulate certain data, conduct cross-site scripting attacks, cause a DoS (Denial of Service), or bypass certain security restrictions.
1) Sensitive information can be disclosed when SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) tracing is enabled.
For more information see vulnerability #1: SA39628
2) Sensitive information may be written to the "default_create.log" file when a profile is created using zPMT and the BBOWWPFx job completes on the target system.
3) An unspecified error in the administration console can be exploited to inject links. No further information is currently available.
4) An error in multi-threaded Multi-Processing Module (MPM) can be exploited to disclose potentially sensitive information.
For more information see vulnerability #3: SA38776
5) Certain unspecified input is not properly sanitised in the administrative console 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.
6) A vulnerability in mod_proxy_ajp module can be exploited to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).
For more information see vulnerability #1: SA38776
7) An error exists in the handling of long file names, which can be exploited to retrieve certain files.
8) An error related to the Deployment Manager and nodeagent can be exploited to cause an out-of-memory condition and a crash by sending a specially crafted request to an affected system.
9) An error related to calling "response.sendRedirect" with "Transfer-Encoding:chunked" exists in the Web Container. This can be exploited to cause a DoS via a specially crafted GET request.
10) An error in the handling of WebServices PKIPath and PKCS#7 tokens types in the JAX-RPC WS-Security 1.0 and JAX-WS runtimes allows bypassing certain security mechanisms.
NOTE: Certain sensitive information may also be disclosed during node federation using the addNode "-trace" option.
