Description Jan Lieskovsky 2012-11-06 08:07:56 EST
Multiple weaknesses were found in Tomcat's DIGEST authentication implementation. This flaw affects all versions up to Tomcat 5.5.35 [1], tomcat 6.0.35 [2] and 7.0.29 [3].

Summary from Tomcat's security pages:
1) Tomcat tracked client rather than server nonces and nonce count.
2) When a session ID was present, authentication was bypassed.
3) The user name and password were not checked before when indicating that a nonce was stale.

Relevant upstream pathes are:
Tomcat 5: http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=rev&rev=1392248
Tomcat 6: http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=rev&rev=1380829
Tomcat 7: http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=rev&rev=1377807

Comment 9 Jan Lieskovsky 2012-11-20 11:06:29 EST
The CVE identifier of CVE-2012-3439 has been rejected (and therefore should not be used) by MITRE:

--
** REJECT **

DO NOT USE THIS CANDIDATE NUMBER. ConsultIDs: CVE-2012-5885,
CVE-2012-5886, CVE-2012-5887. Reason: This candidate is a duplicate
of CVE-2012-5885, CVE-2012-5886, and CVE-2012-5887. Notes: All CVE
users should reference one or more of CVE-2012-5885, CVE-2012-5886,
and CVE-2012-5887 instead of this candidate. All references and
descriptions in this candidate have been removed to prevent accidental
usage.
--

in favour of the following three ids: CVE-2012-5885, CVE-2012-5886, and CVE-2012-5887, whose description is as follows:

1) CVE-2012-5885:
=================
The replay-countermeasure functionality in the HTTP Digest Access Authentication implementation in Apache Tomcat 5.5.x before 5.5.36, 6.x before 6.0.36, and 7.x before 7.0.30 tracks cnonce (aka client nonce) values instead of nonce (aka server nonce) and nc (aka nonce-count) values, which makes it easier for remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions by sniffing the network for valid
requests, a different vulnerability than CVE-2011-1184.

http://tomcat.apache.org/security-5.html
http://tomcat.apache.org/security-6.html
http://tomcat.apache.org/security-7.html

2) CVE-2012-5886:
=================
The HTTP Digest Access Authentication implementation in Apache Tomcat 5.5.x before 5.5.36, 6.x before 6.0.36, and 7.x before 7.0.30 caches information about the authenticated user within the session state, which makes it easier for remote attackers to bypass authentication via vectors related to the session ID.

http://tomcat.apache.org/security-5.html
http://tomcat.apache.org/security-6.html
http://tomcat.apache.org/security-7.html

3) CVE-2012-5887:
=================
The HTTP Digest Access Authentication implementation in Apache Tomcat 5.5.x before 5.5.36, 6.x before 6.0.36, and 7.x before 7.0.30 does not properly check for stale nonce values in conjunction with enforcement of proper credentials, which makes it easier for remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions by sniffing the network for valid requests.
