Description David Walser 2013-01-15 01:52:22 CET
This bug is to allow security fixes for tomcat6 and tomcat (tomcat7) to be pushed while waiting for other issues to be fixed in the tomcat5 update.

tomcat6 (fixed in 6.0.36):
CVE-2012-2733, CVE-2012-3439, CVE-2012-3546, CVE-2012-4431, CVE-2012-4534
http://tomcat.apache.org/security-6.html#Fixed_in_Apache_Tomcat_6.0.36

tomcat/tomcat7 (fixed in 7.0.28, 7.0.30, 7.0.32):
CVE-2012-2733, CVE-2012-3439, CVE-2012-3546, CVE-2012-4431, CVE-2012-4534
http://tomcat.apache.org/security-7.html#Fixed_in_Apache_Tomcat_7.0.28
http://tomcat.apache.org/security-7.html#Fixed_in_Apache_Tomcat_7.0.30
http://tomcat.apache.org/security-7.html#Fixed_in_Apache_Tomcat_7.0.32

http://lwn.net/Vulnerabilities/529883/ also includes some of the CVEs.

CVE-2012-3439 was rejected and broken into CVE-2012-588[5-7].

Advisory (tomcat6):
========================

Updated tomcat6 package fixes security vulnerabilities:

java/org/apache/coyote/http11/InternalNioInputBuffer.java in the HTTP NIO
connector in Apache Tomcat 6.x before 6.0.36 and 7.x before 7.0.28 does not
properly restrict the request-header size, which allows remote attackers to
cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via a large amount of header
data (CVE-2012-2733).

org/apache/catalina/realm/RealmBase.java in Apache Tomcat 6.x before 6.0.36
and 7.x before 7.0.30, when FORM authentication is used, allows remote
attackers to bypass security-constraint checks by leveraging a previous
setUserPrincipal call and then placing /j_security_check at the end of a
URI (CVE-2012-3546).

org/apache/catalina/filters/CsrfPreventionFilter.java in Apache Tomcat 6.x
before 6.0.36 and 7.x before 7.0.32 allows remote attackers to bypass the
cross-site request forgery (CSRF) protection mechanism via a request that
lacks a session identifier (CVE-2012-4431).

org/apache/tomcat/util/net/NioEndpoint.java in Apache Tomcat 6.x before
6.0.36 and 7.x before 7.0.28, when the NIO connector is used in conjunction
with sendfile and HTTPS, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (infinite loop) by terminating the connection during the reading of
a response (CVE-2012-4534).

The replay-countermeasure functionality in the HTTP Digest Access
Authentication implementation in Apache Tomcat 5.5.x before 5.5.36, 6.x
before 6.0.36, and 7.x before 7.0.30 tracks cnonce (aka client nonce)
values instead of nonce (aka server nonce) and nc (aka nonce-count) values,
which makes it easier for remote attackers to bypass intended access
restrictions by sniffing the network for valid requests (CVE-2012-5885).

The HTTP Digest Access Authentication implementation in Apache Tomcat 5.5.x
before 5.5.36, 6.x before 6.0.36, and 7.x before 7.0.30 caches information
about the authenticated user within the session state, which makes it easier
for remote attackers to bypass authentication via vectors related to the
session ID (CVE-2012-5886).

The HTTP Digest Access Authentication implementation in Apache Tomcat 5.5.x
before 5.5.36, 6.x before 6.0.36, and 7.x before 7.0.30 does not properly
check for stale nonce values in conjunction with enforcement of proper
credentials, which makes it easier for remote attackers to bypass intended
access restrictions by sniffing the network for valid requests
(CVE-2012-5887).

Thanks David.

Validating from previous testing in bug 8307

Comment 0 for advisory or advisories and srpm's depending how you want to do it.


Could sysadmin please push tomcat6 & 7 from core/updates_testing to core/updates

Please note tomcat5 still has issues which will be dealt with in the other bug and it is not yet ready for push.

Thanks!
