Synopsis :

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

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in tomcat5 :

Directory traversal vulnerability in Apache Tomcat 5.5.0 through
5.5.28 and 6.0.0 through 6.0.20 allows remote attackers to create or
overwrite arbitrary files via a .. (dot dot) in an entry in a WAR
file, as demonstrated by a ../../bin/catalina.bat entry
(CVE-2009-2693).

The autodeployment process in Apache Tomcat 5.5.0 through 5.5.28 and
6.0.0 through 6.0.20, when autoDeploy is enabled, deploys appBase
files that remain from a failed undeploy, which might allow remote
attackers to bypass intended authentication requirements via HTTP
requests (CVE-2009-2901).

Directory traversal vulnerability in Apache Tomcat 5.5.0 through
5.5.28 and 6.0.0 through 6.0.20 allows remote attackers to delete
work-directory files via directory traversal sequences in a WAR
filename, as demonstrated by the ...war filename (CVE-2009-2902).

Apache Tomcat 5.5.0 through 5.5.29 and 6.0.0 through 6.0.26 might
allow remote attackers to discover the server's hostname or IP address
by sending a request for a resource that requires (1) BASIC or (2)
DIGEST authentication, and then reading the realm field in the
WWW-Authenticate header in the reply (CVE-2010-1157).

Apache Tomcat 5.5.0 through 5.5.29, 6.0.0 through 6.0.27, and 7.0.0
beta does not properly handle an invalid Transfer-Encoding header,
which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(application outage) or obtain sensitive information via a crafted
header that interferes with recycling of a buffer. (CVE-2010-2227)
