IBM Websphere Application Server CBIND security bypass
|was-cbind-security-bypass (77697)||Low Risk|
Websphere Application Server, when running on z/OS, could allow a local attacker to bypass security restrictions, caused by failure to perform CBIND checks when using Federated Repositories for IIOP connections using Optimized Local Adapters. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability via a client application to access or modify application data.
