** DISPUTED ** The TCP-to-ODBC gateway in IBM Tivoli Provisioning Manager for OS Deployment 126.96.36.199 does not require authentication for SQL statements, which allows remote attackers to modify, create, or read database records via a session on TCP port 2020. NOTE: the vendor disputes this issue, stating that the "default Microsoft Access database is not password protected because it is intended to be used for evaluation purposes only."
CWE-287 - Improper Authentication
Improper (or broken) authentication attacks are widespread, and have accounted for many of the worst data breaches in recent years. Improper authentication attacks are a class of vulnerabilities where an attacker impersonates a legitimate user by exploiting weaknesses in either session management or credential management to gain access to the user’s account. This can result in disclosure of sensitive information, and can lead to system compromise, theft, identity theft, and fraud.
