Apache Tomcat Security Manager Bypass
Posted Feb 23, 2016
Authored by Mark Thomas | Site tomcat.apache.org

ResourceLinkFactory.setGlobalContext() is a public method and was accessible by web applications running under a security manager without any checks. This allowed a malicious web application to inject a malicious global context that could in turn be used to disrupt other web applications and/or read and write data owned by other web applications. Apache Tomcat versions 7.0.0 through 7.0.67, 8.0.0.RC1 through 8.0.30, and 9.0.0.M1 through 9.0.0.M2 are affected.
