  • NASL family Mandriva Local Security Checks
    NASL id MANDRIVA_MDVSA-2011-030.NASL
    description Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in tomcat5 : When running under a SecurityManager, access to the file system is limited but web applications are granted read/write permissions to the work directory. This directory is used for a variety of temporary files such as the intermediate files generated when compiling JSPs to Servlets. The location of the work directory is specified by a ServletContect attribute that is meant to be read-only to web applications. However, due to a coding error, the read-only setting was not applied. Therefore, a malicious web application may modify the attribute before Tomcat applies the file permissions. This can be used to grant read/write permissions to any area on the file system which a malicious web application may then take advantage of. This vulnerability is only applicable when hosting web applications from untrusted sources such as shared hosting environments (CVE-2010-3718). The HTML Manager interface displayed web application provided data, such as display names, without filtering. A malicious web application could trigger script execution by an administrative user when viewing the manager pages (CVE-2011-0013). Packages for 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended Maintenance Program. Please visit this link to learn more: http://store.mandriva.com/product_info.php?cPath=149 products_id=490 The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

    description Apache Tomcat is a servlet container for the Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages (JSP) technologies. It was found that web applications could modify the location of the Tomcat host's work directory. As web applications deployed on Tomcat have read and write access to this directory, a malicious web application could use this flaw to trick Tomcat into giving it read and write access to an arbitrary directory on the file system. (CVE-2010-3718) A cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the Manager application, used for managing web applications on Tomcat. If a remote attacker could trick a user who is logged into the Manager application into visiting a specially crafted URL, the attacker could perform Manager application tasks with the privileges of the logged in user. (CVE-2010-4172) A second cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the Manager application. A malicious web application could use this flaw to conduct an XSS attack, leading to arbitrary web script execution with the privileges of victims who are logged into and viewing Manager application web pages. (CVE-2011-0013) This update also fixes the following bugs : - A bug in the 'tomcat6' init script prevented additional Tomcat instances from starting. As well, running 'service tomcat6 start' caused configuration options applied from '/etc/sysconfig/tomcat6' to be overwritten with those from '/etc/tomcat6/tomcat6.conf'. With this update, multiple instances of Tomcat run as expected. (BZ#636997) - The '/usr/share/java/' directory was missing a symbolic link to the '/usr/share/tomcat6/bin/tomcat-juli.jar' library. Because this library was mandatory for certain operations (such as running the Jasper JSP precompiler), the 'build-jar-repository' command was unable to compose a valid classpath. With this update, the missing symbolic link has been added. (BZ#661244) - Previously, the 'tomcat6' init script failed to start Tomcat with a 'This account is currently not available.' message when Tomcat was configured to run under a user that did not have a valid shell configured as a login shell. This update modifies the init script to work correctly regardless of the daemon user's login shell. Additionally, these new tomcat6 packages now set '/sbin/nologin' as the login shell for the 'tomcat' user upon installation, as recommended by deployment best practices. (BZ#678671) - Some standard Tomcat directories were missing write permissions for the 'tomcat' group, which could cause certain applications to fail with errors such as 'No output folder'. This update adds write permissions for the 'tomcat' group to the affected directories. (BZ#643809) - The '/usr/sbin/tomcat6' wrapper script used a hard-coded path to the 'catalina.out' file, which may have caused problems (such as for logging init script output) if Tomcat was being run with a user other than 'tomcat' and with CATALINA_BASE set to a directory other than the default. (BZ#695284, BZ#697504) - Stopping Tomcat could have resulted in traceback errors being logged to 'catalina.out' when certain web applications were deployed. (BZ#698624) Users of Tomcat should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. Tomcat must be restarted for this update to take effect.

    description It was discovered that the Tomcat SecurityManager did not properly restrict the working directory. An attacker could use this flaw to read or write files outside of the intended working directory. (CVE-2010-3718) It was discovered that Tomcat did not properly escape certain parameters in the Manager application which could result in browsers becoming vulnerable to cross-site scripting attacks when processing the output. With cross-site scripting vulnerabilities, if a user were tricked into viewing server output during a crafted server request, a remote attacker could exploit this to modify the contents, or steal confidential data (such as passwords), within the same domain. (CVE-2011-0013) It was discovered that Tomcat incorrectly enforced the maxHttpHeaderSize limit in certain configurations. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause Tomcat to consume all available memory, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2011-0534). Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

  • NASL family Red Hat Local Security Checks
    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2011-0791.NASL
    description Updated tomcat6 packages that fix three security issues and several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. Apache Tomcat is a servlet container for the Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages (JSP) technologies. It was found that web applications could modify the location of the Tomcat host's work directory. As web applications deployed on Tomcat have read and write access to this directory, a malicious web application could use this flaw to trick Tomcat into giving it read and write access to an arbitrary directory on the file system. (CVE-2010-3718) A cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the Manager application, used for managing web applications on Tomcat. If a remote attacker could trick a user who is logged into the Manager application into visiting a specially crafted URL, the attacker could perform Manager application tasks with the privileges of the logged in user. (CVE-2010-4172) A second cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the Manager application. A malicious web application could use this flaw to conduct an XSS attack, leading to arbitrary web script execution with the privileges of victims who are logged into and viewing Manager application web pages. (CVE-2011-0013) This update also fixes the following bugs : * A bug in the 'tomcat6' init script prevented additional Tomcat instances from starting. As well, running 'service tomcat6 start' caused configuration options applied from '/etc/sysconfig/tomcat6' to be overwritten with those from '/etc/tomcat6/tomcat6.conf'. With this update, multiple instances of Tomcat run as expected. (BZ#636997) * The '/usr/share/java/' directory was missing a symbolic link to the '/usr/share/tomcat6/bin/tomcat-juli.jar' library. Because this library was mandatory for certain operations (such as running the Jasper JSP precompiler), the 'build-jar-repository' command was unable to compose a valid classpath. With this update, the missing symbolic link has been added. (BZ#661244) * Previously, the 'tomcat6' init script failed to start Tomcat with a 'This account is currently not available.' message when Tomcat was configured to run under a user that did not have a valid shell configured as a login shell. This update modifies the init script to work correctly regardless of the daemon user's login shell. Additionally, these new tomcat6 packages now set '/sbin/nologin' as the login shell for the 'tomcat' user upon installation, as recommended by deployment best practices. (BZ#678671) * Some standard Tomcat directories were missing write permissions for the 'tomcat' group, which could cause certain applications to fail with errors such as 'No output folder'. This update adds write permissions for the 'tomcat' group to the affected directories. (BZ#643809) * The '/usr/sbin/tomcat6' wrapper script used a hard-coded path to the 'catalina.out' file, which may have caused problems (such as for logging init script output) if Tomcat was being run with a user other than 'tomcat' and with CATALINA_BASE set to a directory other than the default. (BZ#695284, BZ#697504) * Stopping Tomcat could have resulted in traceback errors being logged to 'catalina.out' when certain web applications were deployed. (BZ#698624) Users of Tomcat should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. Tomcat must be restarted for this update to take effect.

  • NASL family Web Servers
    NASL id TOMCAT_TRANSFER_ENCODING.NASL
    description According to its self-reported version number, the Apache Tomcat server listening on the remote host is 5.5.x prior to 5.5.30. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities : - An error in the access restriction on a 'ServletContext' attribute which holds the location of the work directory in Tomcat's SecurityManager. A remote attacker may be able to modify the location of the working directory which then allows improper read and write access to arbitrary files and directories in the context of Tomcat.(CVE-2010-3718) - An error exists in the handling of the 'Transfer-Encoding' header of a client request. This error affects buffer recycling and may lead to the disclosure of sensitive information or allow a denial of service attack to be successful. (CVE-2010-2227) - An error exists in the handling of the '' element in a web application's web.xml file. If the element is missing from the web.xml file and the application is using BASIC or DIGEST authentication, Tomcat will include the server's hostname or IP address in the 'WWW-Authenticate' header of the response. (CVE-2010-1157) Note that Nessus did not actually test for the flaws but instead has relied on the version in Tomcat's banner or error page so this may be a false positive.

(CVE-2011-0013) Multiple flaws were found in the way Tomcat handled HTTP DIGEST authentication. These flaws weakened the Tomcat HTTP DIGEST authentication implementation, subjecting it to some of the weaknesses of HTTP BASIC authentication, for example, allowing remote attackers to perform session replay attacks. (CVE-2011-1184) A flaw was found in the Tomcat MemoryUserDatabase. If a runtime exception occurred when creating a new user with a JMX client, that user's password was logged to Tomcat log files. Note: By default, only administrators have access to such log files.
