GENTOO LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT

PACKAGE :tomcat
SUMMARY :source exposure
DATE :2002-09-25 11:30 UTC

OVERVIEW

Tomcat 4.0.4 and 4.1.10 (probably all other earlier versions also) are
vulnerable to
source code exposure by using the default servlet
org.apache.catalina.servlets.DefaultServlet.

DETAIL

Let say you have valid URL like http://my.site/login.jsp, then an URL like
http://my.site/servlet/org.apache.catalina.servlets.DefaultServlet/login.jsp
will give you the source code of the JSP page.

The full syntaxes of the exposure URL is:

http://{server}[:port]/[Context/]org.apache.catalina.servlets.DefaultServlet
/[context_relative_path/]file_name.jsp

More information can be found at:

SOLUTION

It is recommended that all Gentoo Linux users who are running
net-www/tomcat-4.04 and earlier update their systems
as follows:

emerge rsync
emerge tomcat
emerge clean
