Error description

  • The Change Password  module in IBM Sterling File
    Gateway and myFilegateway is accessible directly
    without any authentication.
    This leads to changing of user credentials by any
    anonymous user by brute forcing the old password
    value of the victim user. (Improper session
    management and brute force attack.)
    This feature is not provided by application before
    authentication.
