USN-2655-1: Tomcat vulnerabilities
25 June 2015
Several security issues were fixed in Tomcat.
- tomcat6 - Servlet and JSP engine
It was discovered that Tomcat incorrectly handled data with malformed
chunked transfer coding. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to
conduct HTTP request smuggling attacks, or cause Tomcat to consume
resources, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2014-0227)
It was discovered that Tomcat incorrectly handled HTTP responses occurring
before the entire request body was finished being read. A remote attacker
could possibly use this issue to cause a limited denial of service.
It was discovered that the Tomcat Expression Language (EL) implementation
incorrectly handled accessible interfaces implemented by inaccessible
classes. An attacker could possibly use this issue to bypass a
SecurityManager protection mechanism. (CVE-2014-7810)
