Vulnerability Details

CVEID: CVE-2015-2025

DESCRIPTION: IBM WebSphere Extreme Scale could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by the failure to set the secure flag for the session cookie in SSL mode. By intercepting its transmission within an HTTP session, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to capture the cookie and obtain sensitive information.

CVSS Base Score: 3.5

CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/104053 for the current score

CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined

CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:S/C:P/I:N/A:N)

CVEID:CVE-2015-2026
DESCRIPTION: IBM WebSphere Extreme Scale is vulnerable to cross-site request forgery, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input. By persuading an authenticated user to visit a malicious Web site, a remote attacker could send a malformed HTTP. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to perform cross-site scripting attacks, Web cache poisoning, and other malicious activities.

CVSS Base Score: 3.5

CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:S/C:N/I:P/A:N)

CVEID: CVE-2015-2029

DESCRIPTION: IBM WebSphere Extreme Scale could allow a remote attacker to hijack a user's session, caused by the failure to invalidate an existing session identifier. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to gain access to another user's session.

CVSS Base Score: 3.5

CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/104058 for the current score

CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined

CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:S/C:N/I:P/A:N)

CVEID: CVE-2015-2030

DESCRIPTION: IBM WebSphere Extreme Scale uses an inadequate account lockout setting that could allow a remote attacker to brute force account credentials.

CVSS Base Score: 5

CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/104070 for the current score

CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined

CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N)

CVEID: CVE-2015-2031

DESCRIPTION: IBM WebSphere Extreme Scale is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability using a specially crafted URL to execute script in a victim's Web browser within the security context of the hosting Web site, once the URL is clicked. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim's cookie-based authentication credentials.

CVSS Base Score: 3.5
