Description Jan Lieskovsky 2013-03-22 15:41:03 UTC
Agostino Sarubbo reported on the oss-security mailing list [1] that, on Gentoo, Tomcat 7's log directory is world-accessible and the log files inside the directory are world-readable.  This could allow an unprivileged user to read the log files.

Comment 1 Jan Lieskovsky 2013-03-22 15:42:54 UTC
This issue did NOT affect the versions of the tomcat package, as shipped with Fedora release of 17 and 18.

Comment 3 David Jorm 2013-09-02 00:36:52 UTC

Red Hat does not regard this to be a security flaw. The tomcat log directory does not contain any sensitive information, and when sensitive information has been written to log files, this has been considered a security flaw in tomcat (e.g. CVE-2011-2204). This issue was reported to the Apache Tomcat project, and they have not considered it a flaw in any published security advisories.
