USN-976-1: Tomcat vulnerability

25 August 2010

Releases

Packages

Details

It was discovered that Tomcat incorrectly handled invalid Transfer-Encoding
headers. A remote attacker could send specially crafted requests containing
invalid headers to the server and cause a denial of service, or possibly
obtain sensitive information from other requests.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 9.10
Ubuntu 9.04
Ubuntu 10.04

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
