Description Marc Schoenefeld 2008-01-23 09:21:50 UTC
Description of problem:

from [http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=41217]

"""When using the SingleSignOn Valve
(org.apache.catalina.authenticator.SingleSignOn) via https the Cookie
JSESSIONIDSSO is transmitted without the "secure" attribute, resulting in it
being transmitted to any content that is - by purpose or error - requested via
http from the same server. 

As the content of the SSO-Cookie is confidential (it will lead to automatically
logged in sessions in other contexts - https or non-https) this should never
happen. """

Also according to the asf bz the upstream versions before 5.5.21 are vulnerable.
