Detail

Problem Description:

Updated tomcat6 packages that fix multiple security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.

3. Description:

Apache Tomcat is a servlet container.

It was found that when an application used FORM authentication, along with another component that calls request.setUserPrincipal() before the call to FormAuthenticator#authenticate() (such as the Single-Sign-On valve), it was possible to bypass the security constraint checks in the FORM authenticator by appending "/j_security_check" to the end of a URL. A remote attacker with an authenticated session on an affected application could use this flaw to circumvent authorization controls, and thereby access resources not permitted by the roles associated with their authenticated session. (CVE-2012-3546)

A flaw was found in the way Tomcat handled sendfile operations when using the HTTP NIO (Non-Blocking I/O) connector and HTTPS. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause a denial of service (infinite loop). The HTTP blocking IO (BIO) connector, which is not vulnerable to this issue, is used by default in Red Hat Enterprise Linux

Description: 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.
