Operating system(s): AIX, Linux, Windows
Reference #: 2011364
Modified date: 07 May 2018

Summary

IBM OpenPages GRC Platform has addressed potential security exposure due to
multiple vulnerabilities in Apache Tomcat.

Vulnerability Details

CVE-ID: CVE-2018-1323
Description: Apache Tomcat JK ISAPI Connector could allow a remote attacker to
obtain sensitive information, caused by the improper handling of HTTP request
paths in jk_isapi_plugin.c. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability using
the reverse proxy to expose application resources.
CVSS Base Score: 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/
140213 for more information
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N)

CVE-ID: CVE-2018-1305
Description: Apache Tomcat could allow a remote attacker to bypass security
restrictions, caused by the failure to properly enforce security constraints
that are defined by annotations of Servlets in certain cases. An attacker could
exploit this vulnerability to bypass security constraints to access restricted
resources.
CVSS Base Score: 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/
139475 for more information
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:H/A:N)

CVE-ID: CVE-2018-1304
Description: Apache Tomcat could allow a remote attacker to bypass security
restrictions, caused by the failure to properly enforce security constraint
definitions that contain a URL pattern of "" (the empty string) that exactly
maps to the context root. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to
bypass security constraints to access restricted resources.
CVSS Base Score: 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/
139476 for more information
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:H/A:N)

CVE-ID: CVE-2017-15706
Description: Apache Tomcat could provide weaker than expected security, caused
by the incorrect documentation of the CGI search algorithm used by the CGI
Servlet to identify which script to execute. The error resulted in the failure
of some scripts to execute as expected and other scripts may have been executed
unexpectedly.
CVSS Base Score: 5.3
CVSS Temporal Score: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/
138486 for more information
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:L/A:N)

CVEID: CVE-2017-12617
DESCRIPTION: Apache Tomcat could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary
code on the system, caused by an incomplete fix related to an error when
running on Windows with HTTP PUTs enabled. By sending a specially crafted
request, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to upload a JSP file and
execute arbitrary code on the system.

CVEID: CVE-2017-12616
DESCRIPTION: Apache Tomcat could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive
information, caused by an error when using VirtualDirContext. By sending a
specially crafted request, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to
bypass security constraints and view the source code of JSPs for resources.
CVSS Base Score: 6.5
