SuSE 11.1 Security Update : tomcat6 (SAT Patch Number 5759)

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

This update fixes a regression in parameter passing (in urldecoding of
parameters that contain spaces).

In addition, multiple weaknesses in HTTP DIGESTS have been fixed
(CVE-2011-1184) :

- The HTTP Digest Access Authentication implementation in
Apache Tomcat 5.5.x before 5.5.34, 6.x before 6.0.33 and
7.x before 7.0.12 does not check qop values, which might
allow remote attackers to bypass intended
integrity-protection requirements via a qop=auth value,
a different vulnerability than CVE-2011-1184.
(CVE-2011-5062)

- The HTTP Digest Access Authentication implementation in
Apache Tomcat 5.5.x before 5.5.34, 6.x before 6.0.33,
and 7.x before 7.0.12 does not check realm values, which
might allow remote attackers to bypass intended access
restrictions by leveraging the availability of a
protection space with weaker authentication or
authorization requirements, a different vulnerability
than CVE-2011-1184. (CVE-2011-5063)

- DigestAuthenticator.java in the HTTP Digest Access
Authentication implementation in Apache Tomcat 5.5.x
before 5.5.34, 6.x before 6.0.33, and 7.x before 7.0.12
uses Catalina as the hard-coded server secret (aka
private key), which makes it easier for remote attackers
to bypass cryptographic protection mechanisms by
leveraging knowledge of this string, a different
vulnerability than CVE-2011-1184. (CVE-2011-5064)
