Debian Security Advisory DSA-1468-1                               Moritz Muehlenhoff

Package        : tomcat5.5
Vulnerability  : several
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-0128 CVE-2007-2450

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Tomcat
servlet and JSP engine. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:


    Olaf Kock discovered that HTTPS encryption was insufficiently
    enforced for single-sign-on cookies, which could result in
    information disclosure.


    It was discovered that the Manager and Host Manager web applications
    performed insufficient input sanitising, which could lead to cross-
    site scripting.

This update also adapts the tomcat5.5-webapps package to the tightened
JULI permissions introduced in the previous tomcat5.5 DSA. However, it
should be noted, that the tomcat5.5-webapps is for demonstration and
documentation purposes only and should not be used for production

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 5.5.20-2etch2.

The old stable distribution (sarge) doesn't contain tomcat5.5.

We recommend that you upgrade your tomcat5.5 packages.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.

Debian 4.0 (stable)
- -------------------

Stable updates are available for alpha, amd64, arm, hppa, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390 and sparc.

Source archives:
    Size/MD5 checksum:  4796377 5775bae8fac16a0e3a2c913c4768bb37
    Size/MD5 checksum:    29045 3269f3be8bdf47cf1fb11bf31bcc564c
    Size/MD5 checksum:     1277 834e30a6f96d53b9a30beb71f5eb76b6

Architecture independent packages:
    Size/MD5 checksum:  1160336 8fd1c53caad5b17d143b6702db7f558b
    Size/MD5 checksum:  2384958 ca939178066edd204e6e891f5ec18e48
    Size/MD5 checksum:    56918 17b4854ccadb2ca5034eefb3dfdb0b9b
    Size/MD5 checksum:  1467572 6740d144b07556d1d6e38c6babd88937

  These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
  its next update.
