Summary

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.

Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE)

Common Attack Pattern Enumeration and Classification (CAPEC)

  • Buffer Overflow via Environment Variables
    This attack pattern involves causing a buffer overflow through manipulation of environment variables. Once the attacker finds that they can modify an environment variable, they may try to overflow associated buffers. This attack leverages implicit trust often placed in environment variables.
  • Server Side Include (SSI) Injection
    An attacker can use Server Side Include (SSI) Injection to send code to a web application that then gets executed by the web server. Doing so enables the attacker to achieve similar results to Cross Site Scripting, viz., arbitrary code execution and information disclosure, albeit on a more limited scale, since the SSI directives are nowhere near as powerful as a full-fledged scripting language. Nonetheless, the attacker can conveniently gain access to sensitive files, such as password files, and execute shell commands.
  • Cross Zone Scripting
    An attacker is able to cause a victim to load content into their web-browser that bypasses security zone controls and gain access to increased privileges to execute scripting code or other web objects such as unsigned ActiveX controls or applets. This is a privilege elevation attack targeted at zone-based web-browser security. In a zone-based model, pages belong to one of a set of zones corresponding to the level of privilege assigned to that page. Pages in an untrusted zone would have a lesser level of access to the system and/or be restricted in the types of executable content it was allowed to invoke. In a cross-zone scripting attack, a page that should be assigned to a less privileged zone is granted the privileges of a more trusted zone. This can be accomplished by exploiting bugs in the browser, exploiting incorrect configuration in the zone controls, through a cross-site scripting attack that causes the attackers' content to be treated as coming from a more trusted page, or by leveraging some piece of system functionality that is accessible from both the trusted and less trusted zone. This attack differs from "Restful Privilege Escalation" in that the latter correlates to the inadequate securing of RESTful access methods (such as HTTP DELETE) on the server, while cross-zone scripting attacks the concept of security zones as implemented by a browser.
  • Cross Site Scripting through Log Files
    An attacker may leverage a system weakness where logs are susceptible to log injection to insert scripts into the system's logs. If these logs are later viewed by an administrator through a thin administrative interface and the log data is not properly HTML encoded before being written to the page, the attackers' scripts stored in the log will be executed in the administrative interface with potentially serious consequences. This attack pattern is really a combination of two other attack patterns: log injection and stored cross site scripting.
  • Command Line Execution through SQL Injection
    An attacker uses standard SQL injection methods to inject data into the command line for execution. This could be done directly through misuse of directives such as MSSQL_xp_cmdshell or indirectly through injection of data into the database that would be interpreted as shell commands. Sometime later, an unscrupulous backend application (or could be part of the functionality of the same application) fetches the injected data stored in the database and uses this data as command line arguments without performing proper validation. The malicious data escapes that data plane by spawning new commands to be executed on the host.

    Apache Tomcat is a servlet container for the Java Servlet and
    JavaServer Pages (JSP) technologies.
    
    It was discovered that the Red Hat Security Advisory RHSA-2007:0871
    did not address all possible flaws in the way Tomcat handles certain
    characters and character sequences in cookie values. A remote attacker
    could use this flaw to obtain sensitive information, such as session
    IDs, and then use this information for session hijacking attacks.
    (CVE-2007-5333)
    
    Note: The fix for the CVE-2007-5333 flaw changes the default cookie
    processing behavior: with this update, version 0 cookies that contain
    values that must be quoted to be valid are automatically changed to
    version 1 cookies. To reactivate the previous, but insecure behavior,
    add the following entry to the '/etc/tomcat5/catalina.properties' 
    file :
    
    org.apache.tomcat.util.http.ServerCookie.VERSION_SWITCH=false
    
    It was discovered that request dispatchers did not properly normalize
    user requests that have trailing query strings, allowing remote
    attackers to send specially crafted requests that would cause an
    information leak. (CVE-2008-5515)
    
    A flaw was found in the way the Tomcat AJP (Apache JServ Protocol)
    connector processes AJP connections. An attacker could use this flaw
    to send specially crafted requests that would cause a temporary denial
    of service. (CVE-2009-0033)
    
    It was discovered that the error checking methods of certain
    authentication classes did not have sufficient error checking,
    allowing remote attackers to enumerate (via brute-force methods)
    usernames registered with applications running on Tomcat when
    FORM-based authentication was used. (CVE-2009-0580)
    
    A cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the examples calendar
    application. With some web browsers, remote attackers could use this
    flaw to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via the 'time' parameter.
    (CVE-2009-0781)
    
    It was discovered that web applications containing their own XML
    parsers could replace the XML parser Tomcat uses to parse
    configuration files. A malicious web application running on a Tomcat
    instance could read or, potentially, modify the configuration and
    XML-based data of other web applications deployed on the same Tomcat
    instance. (CVE-2009-0783)
    
    Users of Tomcat should upgrade to these updated packages, which
    contain backported patches to resolve these issues. Tomcat must be

  • NASL familyMandriva Local Security Checks
    NASL idMANDRIVA_MDVSA-2009-138.NASL
    descriptionMultiple 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 2009.0.

    descriptionAn updated tomcat package that fixes several security issues is now available for Red Hat Network Satellite Server 5.1. This update has been rated as having low security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. Apache Tomcat is a servlet container for the Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages (JSP) technologies. This update corrects several security vulnerabilities in the Tomcat component shipped as part of Red Hat Network Satellite Server. In a typical operating environment, Tomcat is not exposed to users of Satellite Server in a vulnerable manner: By default, only Satellite Server applications are running on Tomcat. This update will reduce risk in unique Satellite Server environments. It was discovered that request dispatchers did not properly normalize user requests that have trailing query strings, allowing remote attackers to send specially crafted requests that would cause an information leak. (CVE-2008-5515) A flaw was found in the way the Tomcat AJP (Apache JServ Protocol) connector processes AJP connections. An attacker could use this flaw to send specially crafted requests that would cause a temporary denial of service. (CVE-2009-0033) It was discovered that web applications containing their own XML parsers could replace the XML parser Tomcat uses to parse configuration files. A malicious web application running on a Tomcat instance could read or, potentially, modify the configuration and XML-based data of other web applications deployed on the same Tomcat instance. (CVE-2009-0783) Users of Red Hat Network Satellite Server 5.1 are advised to upgrade to this updated tomcat package, which contains backported patches to resolve these issues. Tomcat must be restarted for this update to take effect.

    descriptionIt was discovered that a prior security errata for Tomcat version tomcat5-5.5.23-0jpp.3.0.2.el5 did not address all possible flaws in the way Tomcat handles certain characters and character sequences in cookie values.
