Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2007:0569

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2007:0569.

Tomcat is a servlet container for Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages (JSP)

Some JSPs within the 'examples' web application did not escape user
provided data. If the JSP examples were accessible, this flaw could allow a
remote attacker to perform cross-site scripting attacks (CVE-2007-2449).

Note: it is recommended the 'examples' web application not be installed on
a production system.

The Manager and Host Manager web applications did not escape user provided
data. If a user is logged in to the Manager or Host Manager web
application, an attacker could perform a cross-site scripting attack

Users of Tomcat should update to these erratum packages, which contain
backported patches to correct these issues.

Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date

Risk factor : Medium
