IBM BigFix Remote Control before 9.1.3 does not properly restrict failed login attempts, which makes it easier for remote attackers to obtain access via a brute-force approach.

Weakness

When an actor claims to have a given identity, the software does not prove or insufficiently proves that the claim is correct.
