CVSS
Base: 1.9 (as of 30-06-2011 - 09:59)
Impact:
Exploitability:
CWE CWE-200
CAPEC
  • Subverting Environment Variable Values
    The attacker directly or indirectly modifies environment variables used by or controlling the target software. The attacker's goal is to cause the target software to deviate from its expected operation in a manner that benefits the attacker.
  • Footprinting
    An attacker engages in probing and exploration activity to identify constituents and properties of the target. Footprinting is a general term to describe a variety of information gathering techniques, often used by attackers in preparation for some attack. It consists of using tools to learn as much as possible about the composition, configuration, and security mechanisms of the targeted application, system or network. Information that might be collected during a footprinting effort could include open ports, applications and their versions, network topology, and similar information. While footprinting is not intended to be damaging (although certain activities, such as network scans, can sometimes cause disruptions to vulnerable applications inadvertently) it may often pave the way for more damaging attacks.
  • Exploiting Trust in Client (aka Make the Client Invisible)
    An attack of this type exploits a programs' vulnerabilities in client/server communication channel authentication and data integrity. It leverages the implicit trust a server places in the client, or more importantly, that which the server believes is the client. An attacker executes this type of attack by placing themselves in the communication channel between client and server such that communication directly to the server is possible where the server believes it is communicating only with a valid client. There are numerous variations of this type of attack.
  • Browser Fingerprinting
    An attacker carefully crafts small snippets of Java Script to efficiently detect the type of browser the potential victim is using. Many web-based attacks need prior knowledge of the web browser including the version of browser to ensure successful exploitation of a vulnerability. Having this knowledge allows an attacker to target the victim with attacks that specifically exploit known or zero day weaknesses in the type and version of the browser used by the victim. Automating this process via Java Script as a part of the same delivery system used to exploit the browser is considered more efficient as the attacker can supply a browser fingerprinting method and integrate it with exploit code, all contained in Java Script and in response to the same web page request by the browser.
  • Session Credential Falsification through Prediction
    This attack targets predictable session ID in order to gain privileges. The attacker can predict the session ID used during a transaction to perform spoofing and session hijacking.
  • Reusing Session IDs (aka Session Replay)
    This attack targets the reuse of valid session ID to spoof the target system in order to gain privileges. The attacker tries to reuse a stolen session ID used previously during a transaction to perform spoofing and session hijacking. Another name for this type of attack is Session Replay.
  • Using Slashes in Alternate Encoding
    This attack targets the encoding of the Slash characters. An attacker would try to exploit common filtering problems related to the use of the slashes characters to gain access to resources on the target host. Directory-driven systems, such as file systems and databases, typically use the slash character to indicate traversal between directories or other container components. For murky historical reasons, PCs (and, as a result, Microsoft OSs) choose to use a backslash, whereas the UNIX world typically makes use of the forward slash. The schizophrenic result is that many MS-based systems are required to understand both forms of the slash. This gives the attacker many opportunities to discover and abuse a number of common filtering problems. The goal of this pattern is to discover server software that only applies filters to one version, but not the other.

  • NASL family Red Hat Local Security Checks
    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2012-0682.NASL
    description Updated tomcat6 packages that fix multiple security issues and three bugs are now available for JBoss Enterprise Web Server 1.0.2 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 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. JBoss Enterprise Web Server includes the Tomcat Native library, providing Apache Portable Runtime (APR) support for Tomcat. References in this text to APR refer to the Tomcat Native implementation, not any other apr package. This update fixes the JBPAPP-4873, JBPAPP-6133, and JBPAPP-6852 bugs. It also resolves the following security issues : Multiple 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, CVE-2011-5062, CVE-2011-5063, CVE-2011-5064) A flaw was found in the way the Coyote (org.apache.coyote.ajp.AjpProcessor) and APR (org.apache.coyote.ajp.AjpAprProcessor) Tomcat AJP (Apache JServ Protocol) connectors processed certain POST requests. An attacker could send a specially crafted request that would cause the connector to treat the message body as a new request. This allows arbitrary AJP messages to be injected, possibly allowing an attacker to bypass a web application's authentication checks and gain access to information they would otherwise be unable to access. The JK (org.apache.jk.server.JkCoyoteHandler) connector is used by default when the APR libraries are not present. The JK connector is not affected by this flaw. (CVE-2011-3190) A flaw in the way Tomcat recycled objects that contain data from user requests (such as IP addresses and HTTP headers) when certain errors occurred. If a user sent a request that caused an error to be logged, Tomcat would return a reply to the next request (which could be sent by a different user) with data from the first user's request, leading to information disclosure. Under certain conditions, a remote attacker could leverage this flaw to hijack sessions. (CVE-2011-3375) The Java hashCode() method implementation was susceptible to predictable hash collisions. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause Tomcat to use an excessive amount of CPU time by sending an HTTP request with a large number of parameters whose names map to the same hash value. This update introduces a limit on the number of parameters processed per request to mitigate this issue. The default limit is 512 for parameters and 128 for headers. These defaults can be changed by setting the org.apache.tomcat.util.http.Parameters.MAX_COUNT and org.apache.tomcat.util.http.MimeHeaders.MAX_COUNT system properties. (CVE-2011-4858) Tomcat did not handle large numbers of parameters and large parameter values efficiently. A remote attacker could make Tomcat use an excessive amount of CPU time by sending an HTTP request containing a large number of parameters or large parameter values. This update introduces limits on the number of parameters and headers processed per request to address this issue. Refer to the CVE-2011-4858 description for information about the org.apache.tomcat.util.http.Parameters.MAX_COUNT and org.apache.tomcat.util.http.MimeHeaders.MAX_COUNT system properties. (CVE-2012-0022) A flaw 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. (CVE-2011-2204) A flaw in the way Tomcat handled sendfile request attributes when using the HTTP APR or NIO (Non-Blocking I/O) connector. A malicious web application running on a Tomcat instance could use this flaw to bypass security manager restrictions and gain access to files it would otherwise be unable to access, or possibly terminate the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). The HTTP NIO connector is used by default in JBoss Enterprise Web Server. (CVE-2011-2526) Red Hat would like to thank oCERT for reporting CVE-2011-4858, and the Apache Tomcat project for reporting CVE-2011-2526. oCERT acknowledges Julian Walde and Alexander Klink as the original reporters of CVE-2011-4858.

(CVE-2010-3718) A cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the Manager application, used for managing web applications on Apache Tomcat. 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) 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. (CVE-2011-2204) 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 Red Hat Local Security Checks
    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2012-0680.NASL
    description Updated tomcat5 packages that fix multiple security issues and two bugs are now available for JBoss Enterprise Web Server 1.0.2 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 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. JBoss Enterprise Web Server includes the Tomcat Native library, providing Apache Portable Runtime (APR) support for Tomcat. References in this text to APR refer to the Tomcat Native implementation, not any other apr package. This update includes bug fixes as documented in JBPAPP-4873 and JBPAPP-6133. It also resolves the following security issues : 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, CVE-2011-5062, CVE-2011-5063, CVE-2011-5064) A flaw was found in the way the Coyote (org.apache.coyote.ajp.AjpProcessor) and APR (org.apache.coyote.ajp.AjpAprProcessor) Tomcat AJP (Apache JServ Protocol) connectors processed certain POST requests. An attacker could send a specially crafted request that would cause the connector to treat the message body as a new request. This allows arbitrary AJP messages to be injected, possibly allowing an attacker to bypass a web application's authentication checks and gain access to information they would otherwise be unable to access. The JK (org.apache.jk.server.JkCoyoteHandler) connector is used by default when the APR libraries are not present. The JK connector is not affected by this flaw. (CVE-2011-3190) It was found that the Java hashCode() method implementation was susceptible to predictable hash collisions. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause Tomcat to use an excessive amount of CPU time by sending an HTTP request with a large number of parameters whose names map to the same hash value. This update introduces a limit on the number of parameters processed per request to mitigate this issue. The default limit is 512 for parameters and 128 for headers. These defaults can be changed by setting the org.apache.tomcat.util.http.Parameters.MAX_COUNT and org.apache.tomcat.util.http.MimeHeaders.MAX_COUNT system properties. (CVE-2011-4858) It was found that Tomcat did not handle large numbers of parameters and large parameter values efficiently. A remote attacker could make Tomcat use an excessive amount of CPU time by sending an HTTP request containing a large number of parameters or large parameter values. This update introduces limits on the number of parameters and headers processed per request to address this issue. Refer to the CVE-2011-4858 description for information about the org.apache.tomcat.util.http.Parameters.MAX_COUNT and org.apache.tomcat.util.http.MimeHeaders.MAX_COUNT system properties. (CVE-2012-0022) 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. (CVE-2011-2204) A flaw was found in the way Tomcat handled sendfile request attributes when using the HTTP APR or NIO (Non-Blocking I/O) connector. A malicious web application running on a Tomcat instance could use this flaw to bypass security manager restrictions and gain access to files it would otherwise be unable to access, or possibly terminate the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). The HTTP NIO connector is used by default in JBoss Enterprise Web Server. (CVE-2011-2526) Red Hat would like to thank oCERT for reporting CVE-2011-4858, and the Apache Tomcat project for reporting CVE-2011-2526. oCERT acknowledges Julian Walde and Alexander Klink as the original reporters of CVE-2011-4858. Users of Tomcat should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues. Tomcat must be restarted for this update to take effect.

    description Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in tomcat 5.5.x : The implementation of HTTP DIGEST authentication in tomcat was discovered to have several weaknesses (CVE-2011-1184). Apache Tomcat, when the MemoryUserDatabase is used, creates log entries containing passwords upon encountering errors in JMX user creation, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information by reading a log file (CVE-2011-2204). Apache Tomcat, when sendfile is enabled for the HTTP APR or HTTP NIO connector, does not validate certain request attributes, which allows local users to bypass intended file access restrictions or cause a denial of service (infinite loop or JVM crash) by leveraging an untrusted web application (CVE-2011-2526). Certain AJP protocol connector implementations in Apache Tomcat allow remote attackers to spoof AJP requests, bypass authentication, and obtain sensitive information by causing the connector to interpret a request body as a new request (CVE-2011-3190). The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

  • NASL family Amazon Linux Local Security Checks
    NASL id ALA_ALAS-2011-25.NASL
    description Certain AJP protocol connector implementations in Apache Tomcat 7.0.0 through 7.0.20, 6.0.0 through 6.0.33, 5.5.0 through 5.5.33, and possibly other versions allow remote attackers to spoof AJP requests, bypass authentication, and obtain sensitive information by causing the connector to interpret a request body as a new request. The HTTP Digest Access Authentication implementation in Apache Tomcat 5.5.x before 5.5.34, 6.x before 6.0.33, and 7.x before 7.0.12 does not have the expected countermeasures against replay attacks, which makes it easier for remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions by sniffing the network for valid requests, related to lack of checking of nonce (aka server nonce) and nc (aka nonce-count or client nonce count) values. Apache Tomcat 5.5.x before 5.5.34, 6.x before 6.0.33, and 7.x before 7.0.17, when the MemoryUserDatabase is used, creates log entries containing passwords upon encountering errors in JMX user creation, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information by reading a log file.

    NASL id TOMCAT_5_5_34.NASL
    description According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache Tomcat 5.5.x listening on the remote host is prior to 5.5.34. It is, there, affected by multiple vulnerabilities : - Several weaknesses were found in the HTTP Digest authentication implementation. The issues are as follows: replay attacks are possible, server nonces are not checked, client nonce counts are not checked, 'quality of protection' (qop) values are not checked, realm values are not checked and the server secret is a hard-coded, known string. The effect of these issues is that Digest authentication is no stronger than Basic authentication. (CVE-2011-1184, CVE-2011-5062, CVE-2011-5063, CVE-2011-5064) - An error handling issue exists related to the MemoryUserDatabase that allows user passwords to be disclosed through log files. (CVE-2011-2204) - An input validation error exists that allows a local attacker to either bypass security or carry out denial of service attacks when the APR or NIO connectors are enabled. (CVE-2011-2526) - A component that Apache Tomcat relies on called 'jsvc' contains an error in that it does not drop capabilities after starting and can allow access to sensitive files owned by the super user. Note this vulnerability only affects Linux operating systems and only when 'jsvc' is compiled with libpcap and the '-user' parameter is used. (CVE-2011-2729) - Specially crafted requests are incorrectly processed by Tomcat and can cause the server to allow injection of arbitrary AJP messages. This can lead to authentication bypass and disclosure of sensitive information. Note this vulnerability only occurs when the org.apache.jk.server.JkCoyoteHandler AJP connector is not used, POST requests are accepted, and the request body is not processed.(CVE-2011-3190) Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

(CVE-2011-1184) A flaw was found in the way the Coyote (org.apache.coyote.ajp.AjpProcessor) and APR (org.apache.coyote.ajp.AjpAprProcessor) Tomcat AJP (Apache JServ Protocol) connectors processed certain POST requests. An attacker could send a specially crafted request that would cause the connector to treat the message body as a new request. This allows arbitrary AJP messages to be injected, possibly allowing an attacker to bypass a web application's authentication checks and gain access to information they would otherwise be unable to access. The JK (org.apache.jk.server.JkCoyoteHandler) connector is used by default when the APR libraries are not present. The JK connector is not affected by this flaw. (CVE-2011-3190) 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. (CVE-2011-2204) A flaw was found in the way Tomcat handled sendfile request attributes when using the HTTP APR or NIO (Non-Blocking I/O) connector. A malicious web application running on a Tomcat instance could use this flaw to bypass security manager restrictions and gain access to files it would otherwise be unable to access, or possibly terminate the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). The HTTP blocking IO (BIO) connector, which is not vulnerable to this issue, is used by default in Scientific Linux 6. (CVE-2011-2526) This update also fixes the following bug : - Previously, in certain cases, if 'LANG=fr_FR' or 'LANG=fr_FR.UTF-8' was set as an environment variable or in '/etc/sysconfig/tomcat6' on 64-bit PowerPC systems, Tomcat may have failed to start correctly. With this update, Tomcat works as expected when LANG is set to 'fr_FR' or 'fr_FR.UTF-8'. 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 Red Hat Local Security Checks
    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2011-1780.NASL
    description Updated tomcat6 packages that fix several security issues and one bug 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. APR (Apache Portable Runtime) as mentioned in the CVE-2011-3190 and CVE-2011-2526 descriptions does not refer to APR provided by the apr packages. It refers to the implementation of APR provided by the Tomcat Native library, which provides support for using APR with Tomcat. This library is not shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. This update includes fixes for users who have elected to use APR with Tomcat by taking the Tomcat Native library from a different product. Such a configuration is not supported by Red Hat, however. 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.

    title RHEL 6 : tomcat6 (RHSA-2011:1780)
  • NASL family Web Servers
    NASL id TOMCAT_6_0_33.NASL
    description According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache Tomcat 6.0.x listening on the remote host is prior to 6.0.33. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities : - Several weaknesses were found in the HTTP Digest authentication implementation. The issues are as follows: replay attacks are possible, server nonces are not checked, client nonce counts are not checked, 'quality of protection' (qop) values are not checked, realm values are not checked and the server secret is a hard-coded, known string. The effect of these issues is that Digest authentication is no stronger than Basic authentication. (CVE-2011-1184, CVE-2011-5062, CVE-2011-5063, CVE-2011-5064) - An error handling issue exists related to the MemoryUserDatabase that allows user passwords to be disclosed through log files. (CVE-2011-2204) - An input validation error exists that allows a local attacker to either bypass security or carry out denial of service attacks when the APR or NIO connectors are enabled. (CVE-2011-2526) - A component that Apache Tomcat relies on called 'jsvc' contains an error in that it does not drop capabilities after starting and can allow access to sensitive files owned by the super user. Note this vulnerability only affects Linux operating systems and only when the following are true: jsvc is compiled with libpcap and the '-user' parameter is used. (CVE-2011-2729) Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
