Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'tomcat'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
Apache Tomcat is a servlet container for the Java Servlet and JavaServer
Pages (JSP) technologies.

It was discovered that Apache Tomcat did not limit the length of chunk
sizes when using chunked transfer encoding. A remote attacker could use
this flaw to perform a denial of service attack against Tomcat by streaming
an unlimited quantity of data, leading to excessive consumption of server
resources. (CVE-2014-0075)

It was found that Apache Tomcat did not check for overflowing values when
parsing request content length headers. A remote attacker could use this
flaw to perform an HTTP request smuggling attack on a Tomcat server located
behind a reverse proxy that processed the content length header correctly.
(CVE-2014-0099)

It was found that the org.apache.catalina.servlets.DefaultServlet
implementation in Apache Tomcat allowed the definition of XML External
Entities (XXEs) in provided XSLTs. A malicious application could use this
to circumvent intended security restrictions to disclose sensitive
information. (CVE-2014-0096)

The CVE-2014-0075 issue was discovered by David Jorm of Red Hat Product
Security.

All Tomcat 7 users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches to correct these issues. Tomcat must be
restarted for this update to take effect.

Affected Software/OS:
tomcat on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 7)

Solution:
Please Install the Updated Packages.
