Error description

  • The IBM Sterling B2B Integrator application allows users to
    perform various actions using the Web interface,
    including creating business process and review JVM logs.
    Security Assurance identified that the pages providing these
    functionalities do not perform sufficient
    input validation and as such are subject to a directory
    traversal vulnerability.
    This results in disclosure of any file on the server for which
    the full path is known or can be guessed and which the
    "gentrans" user has permission to read. If an
    attacker is able to retrieve files containing sensitive
    information such as passwords, they can
    take control of the web server or web application.
