Apache Tomcat Manager Cross Site Scripting

Apache Tomcat Manager Cross Site Scripting
Posted Nov 23, 2010
Authored by Mark Thomas | Site tomcat.apache.org

The session list screen (provided by sessionList.jsp) in affected versions of Apache Tomcat Manager uses the orderBy and sort request parameters without applying filtering and therefore is vulnerable to a cross-site scripting attack. Versions 7.0.0 through 7.0.4 and 6.0.12 through 6.0.29 are affected.

CVE-2010-4172: Apache Tomcat Manager application XSS vulnerability

Severity: Tomcat 7.0.x - Low, Tomcat 6.0.x - Moderate

Vendor: The Apache Software Foundation

Versions Affected:
- - Tomcat 7.0.0 to 7.0.4
- Not affected in default configuration.
- Affected if CSRF protection is disabled
- Additional XSS issues if web applications are untrusted
- - Tomcat 6.0.12 to 6.0.29
- Affected in default configuration
- Additional XSS issues if web applications are untrusted
- - Tomcat 5.5.x
- Not affected

Description:
The session list screen (provided by sessionList.jsp) in affected
versions uses the orderBy and sort request parameters without applying
filtering and therefore is vulnerable to a cross-site scripting attack.
Users should be aware that Tomcat 6 does not use httpOnly for session
cookies by default so this vulnerability could expose session cookies
from the manager application to an attacker.
A review of the Manager application by the Apache Tomcat security team
identified additional XSS vulnerabilities if the web applications
deployed were not trusted.

Example:
GET
/manager/html/sessions?path=/&sort="><script>alert('xss')</script>order=ASC&action=injectSessions&refresh=Refresh+Sessions+list

Mitigation:
Users of affected versions should apply one of the following mitigations
- - Tomcat 7.0.0 to 7.0.4
- Remove the Manager application
- Remove the sessionList.jsp and sessionDetail.jsp files
- Ensure the CSRF protection is enabled
- Apply the patch 7.0.4 patch (see below)
- Update to 7.0.5 when released
- - Tomcat 6.0.12 to 6.0.29
- Remove the Manager application
- Remove the sessionList.jsp and sessionDetail.jsp files
- Apply the patch for 6.0.29 (see below)
- Update to 6.0.30 when released

No release date has been set for the next Tomcat 7.0.x and Tomcat 6.0.x
releases.

Credit:
The original issue was discovered by Adam Muntner of Gotham Digital Science.
Additional issues were identified by the Tomcat security team as a
result of reviewing the original issue.
