Debian Security Advisory
DSA-3843-1 tomcat8 -- security update
- Date Reported:
- 03 May 2017
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 860068, Bug 860069.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2017-5647, CVE-2017-5648.
- More information:
Two vulnerabilities were discovered in tomcat8, a servlet and JSP engine.
Pipelined requests were processed incorrectly, which could result in some responses appearing to be sent for the wrong request.
Some application listeners calls were issued against the wrong objects, allowing untrusted applications running under a SecurityManager to bypass that protection mechanism and access or modify information associated with other web applications.
For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 8.0.14-1+deb8u9.
For the upcoming stable (stretch) and unstable (sid) distributions, these problems have been fixed in version 8.5.11-2.
We recommend that you upgrade your tomcat8 packages.
