New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201705-09 (Apache Tomcat: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Tomcat. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
A remote attacker may be able to cause a Denial of Service condition, obtain sensitive information, bypass protection mechanisms and authentication restrictions.
A local attacker, who is a tomcat’s system user or belongs to tomcat’s group, could potentially escalate privileges.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll Apache Tomcat users have to manually check their Tomcat runscripts to make sure that they don’t use an old, vulnerable runscript. In addition:
All Apache Tomcat 7 users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=www-servers/tomcat-7.0.70:7' All Apache Tomcat 8 users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=www-servers/tomcat-8.0.36:8'
