Basic Authentication is not checked before performing WS-Addressing and WS-Security processing, which can result in messages being sent to remote servers as part of this processing without the original message being authenticated at the transport level.
Refer to the appropriate IBM Security Bulletin for patch, upgrade or suggested workaround information. See References.
