IBM WebSphere Commerce 7.0 cryptographic issues

CVSS Meta Temp Score
CVSS is a standardized scoring system to determine possibilities of attacks. The Temp Score considers temporal factors like disclosure, exploit and countermeasures. The unique Meta Score calculates the average score of different sources to provide a normalized scoring system.
Current Exploit Price (≈)
Our analysts are monitoring exploit markets and are in contact with vulnerability brokers. The range indicates the observed or calculated exploit price to be seen on exploit markets. A good indicator to understand the monetary effort required for and the popularity of an attack.
CTI Interest Score
Our Cyber Threat Intelligence team is monitoring different web sites, mailing lists, exploit markets and social media networks. The CTI Interest Score identifies the interest of attackers and the security community for this specific vulnerability in real-time. A high score indicates an elevated risk to be targeted for this vulnerability.

A vulnerability was found in IBM WebSphere Commerce 7.0 (Application Server Software). It has been classified as problematic. This affects an unknown function. The manipulation with an unknown input leads to a weak encryption vulnerability. CWE is classifying the issue as CWE-310. This is going to have an impact on confidentiality. The summary by CVE is:

IBM WebSphere Commerce 7.0 does not properly encrypt data in a database, which makes it easier for local users to obtain sensitive information by defeating cryptographic protection mechanisms.

The weakness was published 02/05/2010 (Website). The advisory is shared at This vulnerability is uniquely identified as CVE-2009-2752 since 08/12/2009. An attack has to be approached locally.
