Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-3080-01
Posted Oct 30, 2017
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-3080-01 - Apache Tomcat is a servlet container for the Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages technologies. Security Fix: A vulnerability was discovered in Tomcat's handling of pipelined requests when "Sendfile" was used. If sendfile processing completed quickly, it was possible for the Processor to be added to the processor cache twice. This could lead to invalid responses or information disclosure. A vulnerability was discovered in the error page mechanism in Tomcat's DefaultServlet implementation. A crafted HTTP request could cause undesired side effects, possibly including the removal or replacement of the custom error page.

3. Description:

Apache Tomcat is a servlet container for the Java Servlet and JavaServer
Pages (JSP) technologies.

Security Fix(es):

* A vulnerability was discovered in Tomcat's handling of pipelined requests
when "Sendfile" was used. If sendfile processing completed quickly, it was
possible for the Processor to be added to the processor cache twice. This
could lead to invalid responses or information disclosure. (CVE-2017-5647)

* A vulnerability was discovered in the error page mechanism in Tomcat's
DefaultServlet implementation. A crafted HTTP request could cause undesired
side effects, possibly including the removal or replacement of the custom
error page. (CVE-2017-5664)

* Two vulnerabilities were discovered in Tomcat where if a servlet context
was configured with readonly=false and HTTP PUT requests were allowed, an
attacker could upload a JSP file to that context and achieve code
execution. (CVE-2017-12615, CVE-2017-12617)

4. Solution:
