Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Oracle iPlanet Web Server, which can be exploited by malicious users to disclose sensitive information and by malicious people to conduct cross-site request forgery attacks and disclose and manipulate certain data.
1) The application allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing any validity checks to verify the requests. This can be exploited to e.g. stop an arbitrary instance by tricking a logged in administrative user into visiting a malicious web site.
2) An unspecified error within the "Administration" component can be exploited to disclose and manipulate certain data.
The vulnerabilities are reported in Oracle iPlanet Web Server version 7.0.
3) An unspecified error in the "WebDAV" component can be exploited by authenticated users to disclose certain information.
This vulnerability is reported in Oracle iPlanet Web Server version 7.0u8.
