Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : tomcat5 (MDVSA-2011:156)

Synopsis :

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

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in tomcat
5.5.x :

The implementation of HTTP DIGEST authentication in tomcat was
discovered to have several weaknesses (CVE-2011-1184).

Apache Tomcat, when the MemoryUserDatabase is used, creates log
entries containing passwords upon encountering errors in JMX user
creation, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information by
reading a log file (CVE-2011-2204).

Apache Tomcat, when sendfile is enabled for the HTTP APR or HTTP NIO
connector, does not validate certain request attributes, which allows
local users to bypass intended file access restrictions or cause a
denial of service (infinite loop or JVM crash) by leveraging an
untrusted web application (CVE-2011-2526).

Certain AJP protocol connector implementations in Apache Tomcat allow
remote attackers to spoof AJP requests, bypass authentication, and
obtain sensitive information by causing the connector to interpret a
request body as a new request (CVE-2011-3190).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
