Apache Tomcat ServletSecurity security bypass
|apache-servletsecurity-sec-bypass (66154)||Medium Risk|
Apache Tomcat could allow a remote attacker to bypass security restrictions, caused by the failure to follow ServletSecurity annotations when web.xml has no security constraints. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability using HTTP requests to bypass security restrictions and launch further attacks on the system.
Upgrade to the latest version of Apache Tomcat (7.0.11 or later), available from the Apache Tomcat Web Site. See References.

- CVE-2011-1419: Apache Tomcat 7.x before 7.0.11, when web.xml has no security constraints, does not follow ServletSecurity annotations, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions via HTTP requests to a web application. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2011-1088.
