ELSA-2015-0991 -- Oracle tomcat6

ID: oval:org.secpod.oval:def:1501009Date: (C)2015-05-22   (M)2017-09-22
Class: PATCHFamily: unix




Apache Tomcat is a servlet container for the Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages technologies. It was discovered that the ChunkedInputFilter in Tomcat did not fail subsequent attempts to read input after malformed chunked encoding was detected. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to make Tomcat process part of the request body as new request, or cause a denial of service. This update also fixes the following bug: * Before this update, the tomcat6 init script did not try to kill the tomcat process if an attempt to stop it was unsuccessful, which would prevent tomcat from restarting properly. The init script was modified to correct this issue. All Tomcat 6 users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which correct these issues. Tomcat must be restarted for this update to take effect.
