CVE-2011-1475 Apache Tomcat information disclosure
Vendor: The Apache Software Foundation
Versions Affected: - Tomcat 7.0.0 to 7.0.11 - Earlier versions are not affected
Description: Changes introduced to the HTTP BIO connector to support Servlet 3.0 asynchronous requests did not fully account for HTTP pipelining. As a result, when using HTTP pipelining a range of unexpected behaviours occurred including the mixing up of responses between requests. While the mix-up in responses was only observed between requests from the same user, a mix-up of responses for requests from different users may also be possible.
Mitigation: Users of affected versions should apply one of the following mitigations: - Upgrade to a Tomcat 7.0.12 or later - Switch to the NIO or APR/native HTTP connectors that do not exhibit this issue
Credit: This issue was identified by Brad Piles and reported via the public ASF Bugzilla issue tracking system. The Apache Tomcat security team requests that security vulnerability reports are made privately to firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance.
