Objectivity/DB operations security bypass
|objectivity-operations-sec-bypass (64699)||Medium Risk|
Objectivity/DB could allow a remote attacker to bypass security restrictions, caused by various administrative operations being performed by some components without having authentication. By sending commands to TCP ports 6779 and 6780, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to obtain sensitive information or shutdown the application server.
