Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Apache mod_jk: Directory traversal (GLSA 200708-15)
Severity: low
Exploitable: remote
Date: August 19, 2007
Bug(s): #186218
ID: 200708-15

Synopsis

A directory traversal vulnerability has been discovered in Apache mod_jk.

Background

Apache mod_jk is a connector for the Tomcat web server.

Affected Packages

Package: www-apache/mod_jk
Vulnerable: < 1.2.23
Unaffected: >= 1.2.23
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Apache mod_jk decodes the URL within Apache before passing them to Tomcat, which decodes them a second time.

Impact

A remote attacker could browse a specially crafted URL on an Apache server running mod_jk, possibly gaining access to restricted resources.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Apache mod_jk users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apache/mod_jk-1.2.23"
