ID CVE-2011-2481
Summary Apache Tomcat 7.0.x before 7.0.17 permits web applications to replace an XML parser used for other web applications, which allows local users to read or modify the (1) web.xml, (2) context.xml, or (3) tld files of arbitrary web applications via a crafted application that is loaded earlier than the target application. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of a CVE-2009-0783 regression.

    description The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201206-24 (Apache Tomcat: Multiple vulnerabilities) Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Apache Tomcat. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details. Impact : The vulnerabilities allow an attacker to cause a Denial of Service, to hijack a session, to bypass authentication, to inject webscript, to enumerate valid usernames, to read, modify and overwrite arbitrary files, to bypass intended access restrictions, to delete work-directory files, to discover the server’s hostname or IP, to bypass read permissions for files or HTTP headers, to read or write files outside of the intended working directory, and to obtain sensitive information by reading a log file. Workaround : There is no known workaround at this time.

  • NASL family Web Servers
    NASL id TOMCAT_7_0_19.NASL
    description According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache Tomcat 7.x listening on the remote host is prior to 7.0.17. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities : - An error handling issue exists related to the MemoryUserDatabase that allows user passwords to be disclosed through log files. (CVE-2011-2204) - If loaded before other web applications, a malicious web application can potentially access or modify the web.xml, context.xml, and TLD files of other web applications on the system. (CVE-2011-2481) - 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) Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
