Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2010:0580 0 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Important: tomcat5 security update 2010-08-02 20:00:06 UTC

Description Marc Schoenefeld 2010-07-21 09:15:44 UTC
The RHSA-2009:1164 Tomcat security update for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5
did not, unlike the erratum text stated, provide a fix for CVE-2009-0781, a
cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw in the examples calendar application. A
missing patch is considered a security regression, and requires a new CVE
name. This regression is assigned CVE-2009-2696. It fixes the same issue as
CVE-2009-0781 and is specific to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
