EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : tomcat (EulerOS-SA-2017-1081)

This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description :

According to the versions of the tomcat packages installed, the
EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following
vulnerabilities :

- It was discovered that the code that parsed the HTTP
request line permitted invalid characters. This could
be exploited, in conjunction with a proxy that also
permitted the invalid characters but with a different
interpretation, to inject data into the HTTP response.
By manipulating the HTTP response the attacker could
poison a web-cache, perform an XSS attack, or obtain
sensitive information from requests other then their
own. (CVE-2016-6816)

- A bug was discovered in the error handling of the send
file code for the NIO HTTP connector. This led to the
current Processor object being added to the Processor
cache multiple times allowing information leakage
between requests including, and not limited to, session
ID and the response body. (CVE-2016-8745)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
