NewStart CGSL CORE 5.04 / MAIN 5.04 : tomcat Vulnerability (NS-SA-2019-0059)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 127250

Synopsis

The remote machine is affected by a vulnerability.

Description

The remote NewStart CGSL host, running version CORE 5.04 / MAIN 5.04, has tomcat packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability:

- When the default servlet in Apache Tomcat versions 9.0.0.M1 to 9.0.11, 8.5.0 to 8.5.33 and 7.0.23 to 7.0.90 returned a redirect to a directory (e.g. redirecting to '/foo/' when the user requested '/foo') a specially crafted URL could be used to cause the redirect to be generated to any URI of the attackers choice.
(CVE-2018-11784)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade the vulnerable CGSL tomcat packages. Note that updated packages may not be available yet. Please contact ZTE for more information.
