Description


D. Matscheko has reported a security issue in Apache Tomcat, which can be exploited by malicious people to bypass certain security restrictions.

If Tomcat is running behind a proxy with context restriction, an error within the handling of certain path delimiters in requests ('2F', '%5C', and '\') can be exploited to bypass the context restrictions and may allow access to non-proxied contexts.

The security issue is reported in versions 5.5.0 to 5.5.21, 5.0.0 to 5.5.0.30, and 6.0.0 to 6.0.9.


Solution:
Update to version 5.5.22 or 6.0.10.
