IBM WebSphere Application Server 8.5.5 < 8.5.5.12 DoS

High

Synopsis

The remote host is running an application server that is vulnerable to a Denial of Service (DoS) attack vector.

Description

The remote host appears to be running a version of IBM WebSphere Application Server 8.5 prior to 8.5.5.12 and is affected by a flaw that is triggered when handling serialized objects via SOAP connectors. This may allow a remote attacker to consume excessive resources.

Solution

Upgrade WebSphere Application Server to 8.5.5.12 or later.
