    Vulnerability  : several
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2007-3382 CVE-2007-3385 CVE-2007-5461
    
    Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Tomcat
    servlet and JSP engine. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
    identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2007-3382
    
        It was discovered that single quotes (') in cookies were treated
        as a delimiter, which could lead to an information leak.
    
    CVE-2007-3385
    
        It was discovered that the character sequence \" in cookies was
        handled incorrectly, which could lead to an information leak.
    
    CVE-2007-5461
    
        It was discovered that the WebDAV servlet is vulnerable to absolute
        path traversal.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 5.0.30-12etch1.
    
    The old stable distribution (sarge) doesn't contain tomcat5.
    
    The unstable distribution (sid) no longer contains tomcat5.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your tomcat5 packages.
