jetty: multiple security issues (CVE-2007-5613, CVE-2007-5614, CVE-2007-5615)
Last modified: 2009-10-26 11:28:48 EDT
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2007-5615 to the following vulnerability:
CRLF injection vulnerability in Mortbay Jetty before 6.1.6rc0 allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary HTTP headers and conduct HTTP response splitting attacks via unspecified vectors.
Two other security issues were reported for Jetty:
Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in Dump Servlet in Mortbay
Jetty before 6.1.6rc1 allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web
script or HTML via unspecified parameters and cookies.
Mortbay Jetty before 6.1.6rc1 does not properly handle "certain quote
sequences" in HTML cookie parameters, which allows remote attackers to
hijack browser sessions via unspecified vectors.
Jeff, version of Jetty currently shipped in Fedora is 5.1.12, is it affected by
CVE-2007-5613 does not apply since we don't ship examples. There are no
test-cases provided with the vulnerabilities so I cannot tell you if jetty5 was
susceptible or not. Based on the information provided, we must assume it is
vulnerable since the release predates 6.1.6. I am going to switch the jetty
package to 6.1.6rc1 which addresses all of the problems listed.
I've hit a snag. Jetty6 requires things that aren't currently in Fedora. I am
going to pursue what would be required to patch our jetty5.
Update. Upstream maintainer Greg Wilkins has reported that 5614 and 5615 are
minor severity. He has graciously offered to work on a jetty5 patch with the
earliest completion estimate being after the holidays.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
