Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2008:0042

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2008:0042.

Tomcat is a servlet container for Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages

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.

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
