FreeBSD : tomcat -- multiple vulnerabilities (81fc1076-1286-11e4-bebd-000c2980a9f3)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 76719
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.
DescriptionTomcat Security Team reports :
Tomcat does not properly restrict XSLT stylesheets, which allows remote attackers to bypass security-manager restrictions and read arbitrary files via a crafted web application that provides an XML external entity declaration in conjunction with an entity reference, related to an XML External Entity (XXE) issue.
An integer overflow, when operated behind a reverse proxy, allows remote attackers to conduct HTTP request smuggling attacks via a crafted Content-Length HTTP header.
An integer overflow in parseChunkHeader allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (resource consumption) via a malformed chunk size in chunked transfer coding of a request during the streaming of data.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
