Description

Updated jbossas packages that fix multiple security issues in tomcat are now available for Red Hat Application Stack. This update has been rated as having Important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

Tomcat is a servlet container for Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages technologies. This update addresses the following issues: Tomcat was found to accept multiple content-length headers in a request. This could allow attackers to poison a web-cache, bypass web application firewall protection, or conduct cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2005-2090) Tomcat permitted various characters as path delimiters. If Tomcat was used behind certain proxies and configured to only proxy some contexts, an attacker could construct an HTTP request to work around the context restriction and potentially access non-proxied content. (CVE-2007-0450) Users should upgrade to these erratum packages, which contain an update to jbossas to include a version of Tomcat that resolves these issues. Updated jakarta-commons-modeler packages are also included which correct a bug when used with Tomcat 5.5.23.
