    Package        : tomcat
    Vulnerability  : information exposure, cross site scripting
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id         : CAN-2003-0042 CAN-2003-0043 CAN-2003-0044
    
    The developers of tomcat discovered several problems in tomcat version
    3.x.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
    following problems:
    
     . CAN-2003-0042: A maliciously crafted request could return a
       directory listing even when an index.html, index.jsp, or other
       welcome file is present.  File contents can be returned as well.
    
     . CAN-2003-0043: A malicious web application could read the contents
       of some files outside the web application via its web.xml file in
       spite of the presence of a security manager.  The content of files
       that can be read as part of an XML document would be accessible.
    
     . CAN-2003-0044: A cross-site scripting vulnerability was discovered
       in the included sample web application that allows remote attackers
       to execute arbitrary script code.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.3a-4.1.
    
    The old stable distribution (potato) does not contain tomcat packages.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.3.1a-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your tomcat package.
