Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2014:042
http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : tomcat6
Date : February 19, 2014
Affected: Business Server 1.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Updated tomcat6 packages fix security vulnerabilities:

It was discovered that Tomcat incorrectly handled certain requests
submitted using chunked transfer encoding. A remote attacker could
use this flaw to cause the Tomcat server to stop responding, resulting
in a denial of service (CVE-2012-3544).

A frame injection in the Javadoc component in Oracle Java SE 7
Update 21 and earlier, 6 Update 45 and earlier, and 5.0 Update 45
and earlier; JavaFX 2.2.21 and earlier; and OpenJDK 7 allows remote
attackers to affect integrity via unknown vectors related to Javadoc
(CVE-2013-1571).

A flaw was found in the way the tomcat6 init script handled the
tomcat6-initd.log log file. A malicious web application deployed on
Tomcat could use this flaw to perform a symbolic link attack to change
the ownership of an arbitrary system file to that of the tomcat user,
allowing them to escalate their privileges to root (CVE-2013-1976).

It was discovered that Tomcat incorrectly handled certain
authentication requests. A remote attacker could possibly use this
flaw to inject a request that would get executed with a victim's
credentials (CVE-2013-2067).

Note: With this update, tomcat6-initd.log has been moved from
/var/log/tomcat6/ to the /var/log/ directory.
