 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2008:188
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : tomcat5
 Date    : September 5, 2008
 Affected: 2008.0, 2008.1
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A number of vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Apache
 Tomcat server:
 
 The default catalina.policy in the JULI logging component did not
 restrict certain permissions for web applications which could allow a
 remote attacker to modify logging configuration options and overwrite
 arbitrary files (CVE-2007-5342).
 
 A cross-site scripting vulnerability was found in the
 HttpServletResponse.sendError() method which could allow a remote
 attacker to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via forged HTTP headers
 (CVE-2008-1232).
 
 A cross-site scripting vulnerability was found in the host manager
 application that could allow a remote attacker to inject arbitrary
 web script or HTML via the hostname parameter (CVE-2008-1947).
 
 A traversal vulnerability was found when using a RequestDispatcher in
 combination with a servlet or JSP that could allow a remote attacker
 to utilize a specially-crafted request parameter to access protected
 web resources (CVE-2008-2370).
 
 A traversal vulnerability was found when the 'allowLinking' and
 'URIencoding' settings were actived which could allow a remote attacker
 to use a UTF-8-encoded request to extend their privileges and obtain
 local files accessible to the Tomcat process (CVE-2008-2938).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
