Description

A number of vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Apache Tomcat server :

The default catalina.policy in the JULI logging component did not restrict certain permissions for web applications which could allow a remote attacker to modify logging configuration options and overwrite arbitrary files (CVE-2007-5342).

A cross-site scripting vulnerability was found in the HttpServletResponse.sendError() method which could allow a remote attacker to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via forged HTTP headers (CVE-2008-1232).

A cross-site scripting vulnerability was found in the host manager application that could allow a remote attacker to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via the hostname parameter (CVE-2008-1947).

A traversal vulnerability was found when using a RequestDispatcher in combination with a servlet or JSP that could allow a remote attacker to utilize a specially crafted request parameter to access protected web resources (CVE-2008-2370).

A traversal vulnerability was found when the 'allowLinking' and 'URIencoding' settings were actived which could allow a remote attacker to use a UTF-8-encoded request to extend their privileges and obtain local files accessible to the Tomcat process (CVE-2008-2938).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
