New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

This update includes a rebase from 8.5.30 up to 8.5.32 which resolves two CVEs along with various other bugs/features :

- rhbz#1579612 CVE-2018-8014 tomcat: Insecure defaults in CORS filter enable 'supportsCredentials' for all origins

- rhbz#1607586 CVE-2018-8034 tomcat: host name verification missing in WebSocket client

- rhbz#1607584 CVE-2018-8037 tomcat: Due to a mishandling of close in NIO/NIO2 connectors user sessions can get mixed up

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

Solution

Update the affected 1:tomcat package.
