New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
DescriptionA directory traversal vulnerability in RequestUtil.java was discovered which allows remote authenticated users to bypass intended SecurityManager restrictions and list a parent directory via a /..
(slash dot dot) in a pathname used by a web application in a getResource, getResourceAsStream, or getResourcePaths call.
The Mapper component processes redirects before considering security constraints and Filters, which allows remote attackers to determine the existence of a directory via a URL that lacks a trailing / (slash) character. (CVE-2015-5345)
The session-persistence implementation was discovered to mishandle session attributes, which allows remote authenticated users to bypass intended SecurityManager restrictions and execute arbitrary code in a privileged context via a web application that places a crafted object in a session. (CVE-2016-0714)
It was discovered that org.apache.catalina.manager.StatusManagerServlet was not placed on the org/apache/catalina/core/RestrictedServlets.properties list, which allows remote authenticated users to bypass intended SecurityManager restrictions and read arbitrary HTTP requests, and consequently discover session ID values, via a crafted web application.
