Security Advisory Description

The session-persistence implementation in Apache Tomcat 6.x before 6.0.45, 7.x
before 7.0.68, 8.x before 8.0.31, and 9.x before 9.0.0.M2 mishandles session
attributes, which allows remote authenticated users to bypass intended
SecurityManager restrictions and execute arbitrary code in a privileged context
via a web application that places a crafted object in a session. (CVE-2016-0714)

Impact

A remote authenticated user may bypass the intended security manager
restrictions and execute arbitrary code in a privileged context by exploiting
this vulnerability via a web application that places a crafted object in a
session.

  o BIG-IP/Enterprise Manager

    BIG-IP and Enterprise Manager systems do not use the affected feature. The
    vulnerable software is present; however, the software is not used in a way
    that exposes this vulnerability.

  o Traffix SDC

    Exploitation of this vulnerability may occur if an attacker has access to
    the local network of the system; the Tomcat service is accessible only from
    the internal network.

Security Advisory Status

F5 Product Development has assigned ID 576884 (BIG-IP), ID 578582 (Enterprise
Manager), ID 466436 (ARX), and INSTALLER-2266 (Traffix SDC) to this
vulnerability, and has evaluated the currently supported releases for potential
vulnerability. Additionally, BIG-IP iHealth may list Heuristic H30971148 on the
Diagnostics > Identified > Low screen.

To determine if your release is known to be vulnerable, the components or
features that are affected by the vulnerability, and for information about
releases or hotfixes that address the vulnerability, refer to the following

Security Advisory Recommended Actions

If you are running a version listed in the Versions known to be vulnerable
column, you can eliminate this vulnerability by upgrading to a version listed
in the Versions known to be not vulnerable column. If the table lists only an
older version than what you are currently running, or does not list a
non-vulnerable version, then no upgrade candidate currently exists.
