Apache Tomcat: Low: Session hi-jacking (CVE-2007-5333)

Severity CVSS Published Added Modified
5 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N) February 10, 2008 May 16, 2012 February 12, 2015

Description

Apache Tomcat 6.0.0 through 6.0.14, 5.5.0 through 5.5.25, and 4.1.0 through 4.1.36 does not properly handle (1) double quote (") characters or (2) %5C (encoded backslash) sequences in a cookie value, which might cause sensitive information such as session IDs to be leaked to remote attackers and enable session hijacking attacks. NOTE: this issue exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2007-3385.
