BEA WebLogic Server unauthorized cross domain management

weblogic-cross-domain-management (24286) The risk level is classified as LowLow Risk


BEA WebLogic Server and Express version could allow domain administrative users to gain unauthorized access to other user's domains. Multiple domains that are created from the same instance of WebLogic Server are accessible by any domain administrative user, regardless of whether or not the user has been granted access to the domain. This leads to weaker than expected security standards for affected domains.


Bypass Security


Refer to BEA Systems, Inc. Security Advisory: (BEA06-108.00) for a suggested workaround. See References.
