SuSE 10 Security Update : Tomcat 5 (ZYPP Patch Number 5955)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 41591
SynopsisThe remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionTwo old but not yet fixed security issues in tomcat5 were spotted and are fixed by this update :
- Apache Tomcat 5 before 5.5.17 allows remote attackers to list directories via a semicolon (;) preceding a filename with a mapped extension, as demonstrated by URLs ending with /;index.jsp and /;help.do.
Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in certain applications using Apache Tomcat allowed remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via crafted 'Accept-Language headers that do not conform to RFC 2616'.
These issues were rated 'low' by the Apache Tomcat team.
