Debian Security Advisory DSA-1593-1                               Moritz Muehlenhoff

Package        : tomcat5.5
Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-1947

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

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 5.5.20-2etch3.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 5.5.26-3.

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 GNU/Linux 4.0 alias etch
- -------------------------------

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

Source archives:
    Size/MD5 checksum:     1277 119f28678cab927a6be1cd1e6622cb70
    Size/MD5 checksum:  4796377 5775bae8fac16a0e3a2c913c4768bb37
    Size/MD5 checksum:    29340 1018b80cfeeea2d4f68507be5cdee483

Architecture independent packages:
    Size/MD5 checksum:  1161468 170d5eb777223389eed37a8491825b42
    Size/MD5 checksum:  2385122 70ce8a752564f7cf074775d2619fe5ee
