Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : tomcat (MDVSA-2015:084)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 82337

Synopsis

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

Description

Updated tomcat package fixes security vulnerabilities :

It was discovered that the Apache Commons FileUpload package for Java could enter an infinite loop while processing a multipart request with a crafted Content-Type, resulting in a denial-of-service condition (CVE-2014-0050).

Apache Tomcat 7.x before 7.0.50 processes chunked transfer coding without properly handling (1) a large total amount of chunked data or (2) whitespace characters in an HTTP header value within a trailer field, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service by streaming data (CVE-2013-4322).

Apache Tomcat 7.x before 7.0.50 allows attackers to obtain Tomcat internals information by leveraging the presence of an untrusted web application with a context.xml, web.xml, *.jspx, *.tagx, or *.tld XML document containing an external entity declaration in conjunction with an entity reference, related to an XML External Entity (XXE) issue (CVE-2013-4590).

Integer overflow in the parseChunkHeader function in java/org/apache/coyote/http11/filters/ChunkedInputFilter.java in Apache Tomcat before 6.0.40 and 7.x before 7.0.53 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 (CVE-2014-0075).

java/org/apache/catalina/servlets/DefaultServlet.java in the default servlet in Apache Tomcat before 6.0.40 and 7.x before 7.0.53 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 (CVE-2014-0096).

Integer overflow in java/org/apache/tomcat/util/buf/Ascii.java in Apache Tomcat before 6.0.40 and 7.x before 7.0.53, when operated behind a reverse proxy, allows remote attackers to conduct HTTP request smuggling attacks via a crafted Content-Length HTTP header (CVE-2014-0099).

Apache Tomcat before 6.0.40 and 7.x before 7.0.54 does not properly constrain the class loader that accesses the XML parser used with an XSLT stylesheet, which allows remote attackers to 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, or read files associated with different web applications on a single Tomcat instance via a crafted web application (CVE-2014-0119).

In Apache Tomcat 7.x before 7.0.55, it was possible to craft a malformed chunk as part of a chunked request that caused Tomcat to read part of the request body as a new request (CVE-2014-0227).

Solution

Update the affected packages.
