Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 178176
CVE-2006-0254 tomcat examples XSS (RHAPS)
Last modified: 2008-01-29 04:58:31 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #178175 +++
A new cross-site scripting flaw has been reported in the tomcat jsp examples as
shipped in tomcat5-webapps in Red Hat Application Server. See
This is fixed in upstream svn.
Marking this as moderate severity as users should not be putting examples into
production environments. I've held off marking it low as the examples ought to
show good practices and our users may copy the bad behaviour.
Note also these issues
Note: We've not looked which of these issues actually affect the tomcat5-webapps
Any plans to update this package in the near future?
The package has been updated with a patch that modifies the examples to properly
filter and encode any variables before outputting them as HTML.
An advisory has been issued which should help the problem
described in this bug report. This report is therefore being
closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information
