Oracle Solaris 11: CVE-2017-7675: Vulnerability in Apache Tomcat
The HTTP/2 implementation in Apache Tomcat 9.0.0.M1 to 9.0.0.M21 and 8.5.0 to 8.5.15 bypassed a number of security checks that prevented directory traversal attacks. It was therefore possible to bypass security constraints using a specially crafted URL.
Two issues were discovered in the Tomcat servlet and JSP engine. CVE-2017-7674 Rick Riemer discovered that the Cross-Origin Resource Sharing filter did not add a Vary header indicating possible different responses, which could lead to cache poisoning. CVE-2017-7675 (stretch only) Markus Dörschmidt found that the HTTP/2 implementation bypassed some security checks, thus allowing an attacker to conduct directory traversal attacks by using specially crafted URLs. For the oldstable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 8.0.14-1+deb8u11. For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 8.5.14-1+deb9u2. We recommend that you upgrade your tomcat8 packages.
