    Package        : tomcat4
    Vulnerability  : source disclosure
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id         : CAN-2002-1394
    
    A security vulnerability has been confirmed to exist in Apache Tomcat
    4.0.x releases, which allows to use a specially crafted URL to return
    the unprocessed source of a JSP page, or, under special circumstances,
    a static resource which would otherwise have been protected by a
    security constraint, without the need for being properly
    authenticated.  This is based on a variant of the exploit that was
    identified as CAN-2002-1148.
    
    For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
    fixed in version 4.0.3-3woody2.
    
    The old stable distribution (potato) does not contain tomcat packages.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem does not exist in the
    current version 4.1.16-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your tomcat packages.
