Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Moderate: tomcat security update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2008:0042-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2008-0042.html

Keywords: Security
CVE Names: CVE-2007-5461 CVE-2007-5342
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated tomcat packages that fix security issues and bugs are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64
RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server) - i386, ia64, ppc, s390x, x86_64

3. Description:

Tomcat is a servlet container for Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages
technologies.

A directory traversal vulnerability existed in the Apache Tomcat webdav
servlet. In some configurations it allowed remote authenticated users to
read files accessible to the local tomcat process. (CVE-2007-5461)

The default security policy in the JULI logging component did not restrict
access permissions to files. This could be misused by untrusted web
applications to access and write arbitrary files in the context of the
tomcat process. (CVE-2007-5342)

Users of Tomcat should update to these errata packages, which contain
backported patches and are not vulnerable to these issues.

4. Solution:

This update is available via Red Hat Network. Details on how to use
the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/FAQ_58_10188

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

333791 - CVE-2007-5461 Absolute path traversal Apache Tomcat WEBDAV
427216 - CVE-2007-5342 Apache Tomcat's default security policy is too open
