    Review the Security Bulletin: Potential Privilege Escalation in WebSphere
    Application Server Admin Console (CVE-2017-1731) for vulnerability details.

    Check the version of WAS, if any, that your deployment is actually using,
    and compare it against the list of affected versions in the security
    bulletin.

    Review the Remediation/Fixes section in the Security Bulletin: Potential
    Privilege Escalation in WebSphere Application Server Admin Console
    (CVE-2017-1731) for available fixes in the version that you are using.
