Apache Tomcat version older than 4.1.39

Description
  • This alert was generated using only banner information. It may be a false positive.

    Fixed in Apache Tomcat 4.1.39:
    • moderate: Session hi-jacking CVE-2008-0128
      When using the SingleSignOn Valve via https the Cookie JSESSIONIDSSO is transmitted without the "secure" attribute, resulting in it being transmitted to any content that is - by purpose or error - requested via http from the same server.
    • low: Cross-site scripting CVE-2008-1232
      The message argument of HttpServletResponse.sendError() call is not only displayed on the error page, but is also used for the reason-phrase of HTTP response. This may include characters that are illegal in HTTP headers. It is possible for a specially crafted message to result in arbitrary content being injected into the HTTP response. For a successful XSS attack, unfiltered user supplied data must be included in the message argument.
    • important: Information disclosure CVE-2008-2370
      When using a RequestDispatcher the target path was normalised before the query string was removed. A request that included a specially crafted request parameter could be used to access content that would otherwise be protected by a security constraint or by locating it in under the WEB-INF directory.

    Affected Apache Tomcat version (4.1.0 - 4.1.37).
Remediation
  • Upgrade Apache Tomcat to the latest version.
