New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

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

Description

A number of vulnerabilities were found in Tomcat :

A directory traversal vulnerability, when using certain proxy modules, allows a remote attacker to read arbitrary files via a .. (dot dot) sequence with various slash, backslash, or url-encoded backslash characters (CVE-2007-0450; affects Mandriva Linux 2007.1 only).

Multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in certain JSP files allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML (CVE-2007-2449).

Multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in the Manager and Host Manager web applications allow remote authenticated users to inject arbitrary web script or HTML (CVE-2007-2450).

Tomcat treated single quotes as delimiters in cookies, which could cause sensitive information such as session IDs to be leaked and allow remote attackers to conduct session hijacking attacks (CVE-2007-3382).

Tomcat did not properly handle the ' character sequence in a cookie value, which could cause sensitive information such as session IDs to be leaked and allow remote attackers to conduct session hijacking attacks (CVE-2007-3385).

A cross-site scripting vulnerability in the Host Manager servlet allowed remote attackers to inject arbitrary HTML and web script via crafted attacks (CVE-2007-3386).

Finally, an absolute path traversal vulnerability, under certain configurations, allows remote authenticated users to read arbitrary files via a WebDAV write request that specifies an entity with a SYSTEM tag (CVE-2007-5461).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
