Description Mark J. Cox 2006-01-18 10:49:30 UTC
+++ 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

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Fedora Core 4 is no longer maintained.

Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the
current Fedora release, please reopen this bug and assign it to the
corresponding Fedora version.
