    Severity CVSS Published Added Modified
    5 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N) June 15, 2009 May 16, 2012 February 12, 2015

    Description

    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.
