[USN-3787-1] Tomcat vulnerability

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3787-1
October 10, 2018

tomcat7, tomcat8 vulnerability

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS


Tomcat could be made to redirect to arbitrary locations.

Software Description:
- tomcat8: Servlet and JSP engine
- tomcat7: Servlet and JSP engine


It was discovered that Tomcat incorrectly handled returning redirects to a
directory. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue with a specially
crafted URL to redirect to arbitrary URIs.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
  libtomcat8-java                 8.0.32-1ubuntu1.8
  tomcat8                         8.0.32-1ubuntu1.8

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
  libtomcat7-java                 7.0.52-1ubuntu0.16
  tomcat7                         7.0.52-1ubuntu0.16

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
