|appscan-cve20133989-info-disclosure (84975)||Low Risk|
IBM AppScan Enterprise could allow a remote authenticated attacker to obtain sensitive information. The password value for the AppScan Source database is sent in a response from AppScan Enterprise in a non-encrypted format. This may allow an attacker to successfully execute a "man-in-the-middle" attack on the client.
