openSUSE Security Update : tomcat6 (openSUSE-SU-2012:0208-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

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

In addition, multiple weaknesses in HTTP DIGESTS are fixed
(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 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-2011-5063: 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-2011-5064: 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.
