Vulnerability Vulnerable Version

Arbitrary Code Execution

org.apache.tomcat:catalina is a Servlet Engine Core Classes and Standard implementations.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Arbitrary Code Execution. When running Apache Tomcat versions 9.0.0.M1 to 9.0.0, 8.5.0 to 8.5.22, 8.0.0.RC1 to 8.0.46 and 7.0.0 to 7.0.81 with HTTP PUTs enabled (e.g. via setting the readonly initialisation parameter of the Default servlet to false) it was possible to upload a JSP file to the server via a specially crafted request. This JSP could then be requested and any code it contained would be executed by the server.

This is due to an incomplete fix for CVE-2017-12615.

Access Restriction Bypass

org.apache.tomcat:catalina is a Servlet Engine Core Classes and Standard implementations.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Access Restriction Bypass. It was discovered that it was possible for a web application to access any global JNDI resource whether an explicit ResourceLink had been configured or not.

How to fix Access Restriction Bypass?

Upgrade org.apache.tomcat:catalina to version 6.0.47 or higher.

[6.0.13,6.0.47)
  • M
Timing Attack

org.apache.tomcat:catalina is a Servlet Engine Core Classes and Standard implementations.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Timing Attack. The setGlobalContext method in ResourceLinkFactory.java does not consider whether callers to this method are authorized, which allows remote authenticated users to bypass intended SecurityManager restrictions and read or write to arbitrary application data, or cause a denial of service (application disruption), via a web application that sets a crafted global context.

  • M
Directory Traversal

org.apache.tomcat:catalina is a Servlet Engine Core Classes and Standard implementations.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Directory Traversal. It allows remote authenticated users to bypass intended SecurityManager restrictions and list a parent directory via a /.. (slash dot dot) in a pathname used by a web application in a getResource, getResourceAsStream, or getResourcePaths call, as demonstrated by the $CATALINA_BASE/webapps directory.

How to fix Directory Traversal?

Upgrade org.apache.tomcat:catalina to version 6.0.45 or higher.

Information Exposure

org.apache.tomcat:catalina Apache Tomcat 6.x before 6.0.45, 7.x before 7.0.68, 8.x before 8.0.31, and 9.x before 9.0.0.M2 does not place org.apache.catalina.manager.StatusManagerServlet on the org/apache/catalina/core/RestrictedServlets.properties list, which allows remote authenticated users to bypass intended SecurityManager restrictions and read arbitrary HTTP requests, and consequently discover session ID values, via a crafted web application.

Arbitrary Code Execution

org.apache.tomcat:catalina The session-persistence implementation in Apache Tomcat 6.x before 6.0.45, 7.x before 7.0.68, 8.x before 8.0.31, and 9.x before 9.0.0.M2 mishandles session attributes, which allows remote authenticated users to bypass intended SecurityManager restrictions and execute arbitrary code in a privileged context via a web application that places a crafted object in a session.

Directory Traversal

org.apache.tomcat:catalina The Mapper component in Apache Tomcat 6.x before 6.0.45, 7.x before 7.0.68, 8.x before 8.0.30, and 9.x before 9.0.0.M2 processes redirects before considering security constraints and Filters, which allows remote attackers to determine the existence of a directory via a URL that lacks a trailing / (slash) character.

  • L
Directory Traversal

org.apache.tomcat:catalina is a Servlet Engine Core Classes and Standard implementations.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Directory Traversal. When running within a SecurityManager, does not make the ServletContext attribute read-only, which allows local web applications to read or write files outside of the intended working directory, as demonstrated using a directory traversal attack.

How to fix Directory Traversal?

Upgrade org.apache.tomcat:catalina to version 6.0.53 or higher.

[6.0.13,6.0.53)
