IBM WebSphere DataPower XC10 Appliance spoofing
|websphere-datapower-app-spoofing (79921)||Medium Risk|
IBM WebSphere DataPower XC10 appliances uses a hardcoded secret for server authentication and the secret may be transmitted over the wire in cleartext in cases where TLS is not used. This could be exploited by a malicious user to recover the hardcoded secret and conduct spoofing attacks against another legitimate appliance.
Refer to IBM Security Bulletin 1615783 for patch, upgrade or suggested workaround information. See References.
