Package : tomcat5
Vulnerability : several
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2007-3382 CVE-2007-3385 CVE-2007-5461

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

CVE-2007-3382

It was discovered that single quotes (') in cookies were treated
as a delimiter, which could lead to an information leak.

CVE-2007-3385

It was discovered that the character sequence \\" in cookies was
handled incorrectly, which could lead to an information leak.

CVE-2007-5461

It was discovered that the WebDAV servlet is vulnerable to absolute
path traversal.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 5.0.30-12etch1.

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

The unstable distribution (sid) no longer contains tomcat5.

We recommend that you upgrade your tomcat5 packages.
