EulerOS 2.0 SP8 : tomcat (EulerOS-SA-2020-1829)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 139159


The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.


According to the versions of the tomcat packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- The payload length in a WebSocket frame was not correctly validated in Apache Tomcat 10.0.0-M1 to 10.0.0-M6, 9.0.0.M1 to 9.0.36, 8.5.0 to 8.5.56 and 7.0.27 to 7.0.104. Invalid payload lengths could trigger an infinite loop. Multiple requests with invalid payload lengths could lead to a denial of service.(CVE-2020-13935)

- An h2c direct connection to Apache Tomcat 10.0.0-M1 to 10.0.0-M6, 9.0.0.M5 to 9.0.36 and 8.5.1 to 8.5.56 did not release the HTTP/1.1 processor after the upgrade to HTTP/2. If a sufficient number of such requests were made, an OutOfMemoryException could occur leading to a denial of service.(CVE-2020-13934)

- A specially crafted sequence of HTTP/2 requests sent to Apache Tomcat 10.0.0-M1 to 10.0.0-M5, 9.0.0.M1 to 9.0.35 and 8.5.0 to 8.5.55 could trigger high CPU usage for several seconds. If a sufficient number of such requests were made on concurrent HTTP/2 connections, the server could become unresponsive.(CVE-2020-11996)

- When using Apache Tomcat versions 10.0.0-M1 to 10.0.0-M4, 9.0.0.M1 to 9.0.34, 8.5.0 to 8.5.54 and 7.0.0 to 7.0.103 if a) an attacker is able to control the contents and name of a file on the server and b) the server is configured to use the PersistenceManager with a FileStore and c) the PersistenceManager is configured with sessionAttributeValueClassNameFilter='null' (the default unless a SecurityManager is used) or a sufficiently lax filter to allow the attacker provided object to be deserialized and d) the attacker knows the relative file path from the storage location used by FileStore to the file the attacker has control over then, using a specifically crafted request, the attacker will be able to trigger remote code execution via deserialization of the file under their control.
Note that all of conditions a) to d) must be true for the attack to succeed.(CVE-2020-9484)

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.


Update the affected tomcat packages.
