Appliance 

Reference #:

1971424 

Modified date:

Summary

IBM Security Access Manager for Web has SSH Server Cipher Block Chaining (CBC)
mode ciphers enabled, which could allow an attacker to recover the plaintext 
message from the ciphertext.

Vulnerability Details

CVEID: CVE-2008-5161

DESCRIPTION: OpenSSH and multiple SSH Tectia products could allow a remote 
attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by the improper handling of 
errors within an SSH session which is encrypted with a block cipher algorithm
in CBC mode. A remote attacker with read and write access to network data 
could exploit this vulnerability to display plaintext bits from a block of 
ciphertext and obtain sensitive information.
