   An update that fixes four vulnerabilities is now available.

Description:

   This update fixes a regression in parameter passing (in
   urldecoding of parameters that contain spaces).

   In addition, multiple weaknesses in HTTP DIGESTS are fixed
   (CVE-2011-1184).


   CVE-2011-5062: The HTTP Digest Access Authentication
   implementation in Apache Tomcat 5.5.x before 5.5.34, 6.x
   before 6.0.33 and 7.x before 7.0.12 does not check qop
   values, which might allow remote attackers to bypass
   intended integrity-protection requirements via a qop=auth
   value, a different vulnerability than CVE-2011-1184.

   CVE-2011-5063: The HTTP Digest Access Authentication
   implementation in Apache Tomcat 5.5.x before 5.5.34, 6.x
   before 6.0.33, and 7.x before 7.0.12 does not check realm
   values, which might allow remote attackers to bypass
   intended access restrictions by leveraging the availability
   of a protection space with weaker authentication or
   authorization requirements, a different vulnerability than
   CVE-2011-1184.

   CVE-2011-5064: DigestAuthenticator.java in the HTTP Digest
   Access Authentication implementation in Apache Tomcat 5.5.x
   before 5.5.34, 6.x before 6.0.33, and 7.x before 7.0.12
   uses Catalina as the hard-coded server secret (aka private
   key), which makes it easier for remote attackers to bypass
   cryptographic protection mechanisms by leveraging knowledge
   of this string, a different vulnerability than
   CVE-2011-1184.
