Vulnerability Summary

Oracle Database: Critical Patch Update - January 2018 (CVE-2017-12617)

Several security issues were fixed in Tomcat.

When running Apache Tomcat versions 9.0.0.M1 to 9.0.0, 8.5.0 to 8.5.22, 8.0.0.RC1 to 8.0.46 and 7.0.0 to 7.0.81 with HTTP PUTs enabled (e.g. via setting the readonly initialisation parameter of the Default servlet to false) it was possible to upload a JSP file to the server via a specially crafted request. This JSP could then be requested and any code it contained would be executed by the server.

A vulnerability in Apache Tomcat could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on a targeted system. The vulnerability is due to insufficient validation of user-supplied input by the affected software. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by uploading a crafted Java Server Page (JSP) file to a targeted server running an affected version of Apache Tomcat. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code on the targeted server. Proof-of-concept code that demonstrates an exploit of this vulnerability is publicly available. The Apache Software Foundation has confirmed the vulnerability and released software updates.
