Description

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

An additional cross-site scripting vulnerability was discovered in the host manager application. A remote attacker could inject arbitrary web script or HTML via the hostname parameter. (CVE-2008-1947)

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

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