 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2009:163 

 Package : tomcat5
 Date    : July 28, 2009
 Affected: Enterprise Server 5.0

 Problem Description:

 Multiple security vulnerabilities has been identified and fixed
 in tomcat5:
 Apache Tomcat 4.1.0 through 4.1.39, 5.5.0 through 5.5.27, 6.0.0 through
 6.0.18, and possibly earlier versions normalizes the target pathname
 before filtering the query string when using the RequestDispatcher
 method, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access
 restrictions and conduct directory traversal attacks via .. (dot dot)
 sequences and the WEB-INF directory in a Request (CVE-2008-5515).
 Apache Tomcat 4.1.0 through 4.1.39, 5.5.0 through 5.5.27, and 6.0.0
 through 6.0.18, when the Java AJP connector and mod_jk load balancing
 are used, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
 (application outage) via a crafted request with invalid headers,
 related to temporary blocking of connectors that have encountered
 errors, as demonstrated by an error involving a malformed HTTP Host
 header (CVE-2009-0033).
 Apache Tomcat 4.1.0 through 4.1.39, 5.5.0 through 5.5.27, and
 6.0.0 through 6.0.18, when FORM authentication is used, allows
 remote attackers to enumerate valid usernames via requests to
 /j_security_check with malformed URL encoding of passwords, related to
 improper error checking in the (1) MemoryRealm, (2) DataSourceRealm,
 and (3) JDBCRealm authentication realms, as demonstrated by a %
 (percent) value for the j_password parameter (CVE-2009-0580).
 The calendar application in the examples web application contains an
 XSS flaw due to invalid HTML which renders the XSS filtering protection
 ineffective (CVE-2009-0781).
 Apache Tomcat 4.1.0 through 4.1.39, 5.5.0 through 5.5.27, and 6.0.0
 through 6.0.18 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 (CVE-2009-0783).
 The updated packages have been patched to prevent this. Additionally
 Apache Tomcat has been upgraded to the latest 5.5.27 version for MES5.
