Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

A directory traversal vulnerability existed in the Apache Tomcat
webdav servlet. In some configurations it allowed remote authenticated
users to read files accessible to the local tomcat process.
(CVE-2007-5461)

The default security policy in the JULI logging component did not
restrict access permissions to files. This could be misused by
untrusted web applications to access and write arbitrary files in the
context of the tomcat process. (CVE-2007-5342)
