Description

The (1) Manager and (2) Host Manager applications in Apache Tomcat 7.x before 7.0.68, 8.x before 8.0.31, and 9.x before 9.0.0.M2 establish sessions and send CSRF tokens for arbitrary new requests, which allows remote attackers to bypass a CSRF protection mechanism by using a token.

Solution(s)

  • apache-tomcat-upgrade-7_0_68
  • apache-tomcat-upgrade-8_0_32
