Scientific Linux Security Update : tomcat on SL7.x (noarch)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 102032


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


Security Fix(es) :

- A vulnerability was discovered in the error page mechanism in Tomcat's DefaultServlet implementation. A crafted HTTP request could cause undesired side effects, possibly including the removal or replacement of the custom error page. (CVE-2017-5664)

- A vulnerability was discovered in Tomcat. When running an untrusted application under a SecurityManager it was possible, under some circumstances, for that application to retain references to the request or response objects and thereby access and/or modify information associated with another web application. (CVE-2017-5648)


Update the affected packages.
