    description IBM WebSphere Application Server 8.0 before Fix Pack 2 appears to be running on the remote host and is potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities : - An unspecified cross-site scripting issue exists related to the 'Web 2.0 Messaging service'. (PM37840) - A security exposure when using WS-Security could result in a user gaining elevated privileges in applications using JAX-WS. (PM43585 / CVE-2011-1377) - Insecure file permissions are applied to the files in the '$WAS_HOME/systemapps/isclite.ear' and '$WAS_HOME/bin/client_ffdc' directories. These permissions can allow a local attacker to read or write files in those directories. Note this issue only affects the application on the IBM i operating system. (PM49712) - An error exists in the class 'javax.naming.directory.AttributeInUseException' and can allow old passwords to still provide access. This error is triggered when passwords are updated by using IBM Tivoli Directory Server. (PM52049)

    description IBM WebSphere Application Server 6.1 before Fix Pack 43 appears to be running on the remote host. As such, it is potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities : - An unspecified error exists related to WS-Security enabled JAX-RPC applications. (PM45181) - Insecure file permissions are applied to the files in the '$WAS_HOME/systemapps/isclite.ear' and '$WAS_HOME/bin/client_ffdc' directories.

(PM52274, PM53132) - SSL client certificate authentication can be bypassed when all of the following are true (PM52351) : - SSL is enabled with 'SSLEnable' - SSL client authentication is enabled with 'SSLClientAuth required_reset'. This is not enabled by default. Also note, 'SSLClientAuth required' is not affected - SSLv2 has not been disabled with 'SSLProtocolDisable SSLv2' - 'SSLClientAuthRequire' is not enabled - An issue related to the weak randomization of Java hash data structures can allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service with maliciously crafted POST requests.
