This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 9 host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

Two old but not yet fixed security issues in tomcat5 were spotted and
are fixed by this update :

- Apache Tomcat 5 before 5.5.17 allows remote attackers to
list directories via a semicolon (;) preceding a
filename with a mapped extension, as demonstrated by
URLs ending with /;index.jsp and /;help.do.
(CVE-2006-3835)

Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in certain applications using
Apache Tomcat allowed remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script
or HTML via crafted 'Accept-Language headers that do not conform to
RFC 2616'.

These issues were rated 'low' by the Apache Tomcat team.
