Description

The Axis2 administrator 'admin' has a password that is set to the default value of 'axis2'. As a result, anyone with access to the Axis2 port can trivially gain full access to the machine via arbitrary remote code execution. This requires the attacker to upload a malicious webservice and for the instance of Tomcat to be restarted.

This vulnerability affects default Axis2 installations as well as SAP BusinessObjects via the web service module (known as dswsbobje) and other products that are based on Axis2
