Problem description

A number of vulnerabilities were found in Tomcat:

A directory traversal vulnerability, when using certain proxy modules,
allows a remote attacker to read arbitrary files via a .. (dot dot)
sequence with various slash, backslash, or url-encoded backslash
characters (CVE-2007-0450; affects Mandriva Linux 2007.1 only).

Multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in certain JSP files
allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML
(CVE-2007-2449).

Multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in the Manager and Host
Manager web applications allow remote authenticated users to inject
arbitrary web script or HTML (CVE-2007-2450).

Tomcat treated single quotes as delimiters in cookies, which could
cause sensitive information such as session IDs to be leaked and allow
remote attackers to conduct session hijacking attacks (CVE-2007-3382).

Tomcat did not properly handle the " character sequence in a cookie
value, which could cause sensitive information such as session IDs
to be leaked and allow remote attackers to conduct session hijacking
attacks (CVE-2007-3385).

A cross-site scripting vulnerability in the Host Manager servlet
allowed remote attackers to inject arbitrary HTML and web script via
crafted attacks (CVE-2007-3386).

Finally, an absolute path traversal vulnerability, under certain
configurations, allows remote authenticated users to read arbitrary
files via a WebDAV write request that specifies an entity with a
SYSTEM tag (CVE-2007-5461).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
