Description

Certain versions of Apache Tomcat WebDAV fail to restrict absolute path traversal. This could allow a remote attacker to read arbitrary files via some WebDAV requests that specify an entity with a SYSTEM tag.

Solution(s)

  • tomcat-4x-upgrade-4_1_37
  • tomcat-5x-upgrade-5_5_26
  • tomcat-6x-upgrade-6_0_16

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
