Scientific Linux Security Update : tomcat on SL5.x i386/x86_64
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 60371
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA directory traversal vulnerability existed in the Apache Tomcat webdav servlet. In some configurations it allowed remote authenticated users to read files accessible to the local tomcat process.
The default security policy in the JULI logging component did not restrict access permissions to files. This could be misused by untrusted web applications to access and write arbitrary files in the context of the tomcat process. (CVE-2007-5342)
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
