[SECURITY] [DSA 1453-1] New tomcat5 packages fix several vulnerabilities
Hash: SHA1

- ------------------------------------------------------------------------
Debian Security Advisory DSA-1453-1 Moritz Muehlenhoff

Package : tomcat5
Vulnerability : several
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2007-3382 CVE-2007-3385 CVE-2007-5461

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Tomcat
servlet and JSP engine. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:


It was discovered that single quotes (') in cookies were treated
as a delimiter, which could lead to an information leak.


It was discovered that the character sequence \" in cookies was
handled incorrectly, which could lead to an information leak.


It was discovered that the WebDAV servlet is vulnerable to absolute
path traversal.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 5.0.30-12etch1.

The old stable distribution (sarge) doesn't contain tomcat5.

The unstable distribution (sid) no longer contains tomcat5.

We recommend that you upgrade your tomcat5 packages.
