EulerOS 2.0 SP2 : tomcat (EulerOS-SA-2018-1220)
High Nessus Plugin ID 111182
SynopsisThe remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAccording to the version of the tomcat packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :
- The defaults settings for the CORS filter provided in Apache Tomcat 9.0.0.M1 to 9.0.8, 8.5.0 to 8.5.31, 8.0.0.RC1 to 8.0.52, 7.0.41 to 7.0.88 are insecure and enable 'supportsCredentials' for all origins. It is expected that users of the CORS filter will have configured it appropriately for their environment rather than using it in the default configuration.
Therefore, it is expected that most users will not be impacted by this issue.(CVE-2018-8014)
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected tomcat package.
