Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : tomcat (multiple_vulnerabilities_in_tomcat)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 80792
SynopsisThe remote Solaris system is missing a security patch for third-party software.
DescriptionThe remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address security updates :
- Apache Tomcat 6.x before 6.0.37 and 7.x before 7.0.30 does not properly handle chunk extensions in chunked transfer coding, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service by streaming data. (CVE-2012-3544)
- java/org/apache/catalina/authenticator/FormAuthenticator .java in the form authentication feature in Apache Tomcat 6.0.21 through 6.0.36 and 7.x before 7.0.33 does not properly handle the relationships between authentication requirements and sessions, which allows remote attackers to inject a request into a session by sending this request during completion of the login form, a variant of a session fixation attack.
SolutionUpgrade to Solaris 22.214.171.124.0.
