Apache Jakarta Tomcat delivers file contents
|apache-tomcat-file-contents (4205)||High Risk|
Jakarta Tomcat could allow an attacker to read the contents of any file on the Web server. The program includes a sample file, source.jsp, that displays the contents of a requested file in a Web browser. By using "dot dot" (../) sequences, a remote attacker could use the source.jsp file to traverse directories and read the contents of any file on the Web server.
Upgrade to the latest version of Apache (3.1 or later), from the Jakarta Project Web site. See References.
