Flash (Alert)


Abstract

Apache Axis2 SSL vulnerability for IBM Tivoli Directory Integrator

Content

VULNERABILITY DETAILS:



DESCRIPTION:
Axis2 implemented in Java is vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks. By extension, all applications using this library to establish SSL connections with the target servers may be affected by this vulnerability. Data sent over the network, such as login credentials, bank account numbers, personal identifiable information, may be compromised. The vulnerability can be exposed in any network topology in which a man-in-the-middle can be deployed. Since IBM Tivoli Directory Integrator v7.0, v7.1 and v7.1.1 uses Axis2 library they may be vulnerable to the attack.
The attack does not require local network access nor does it require authentication, but specialized knowledge and techniques are required. An exploit will not impact accessibility of system resources or the confidentiality of information, but the integrity of some of the transmitted data could be compromised.
