Description Arun Babu Neelicattu 2013-06-16 01:25:42 EDT
A poison null byte flaw was found in the implementation of the DiskFileItem class. A remote attacker able to supply a serialized instance of the DiskFileItem class, which will be deserialized on a server, could use this flaw to write arbitrary content to any location on the server that is permitted by the user running the application server process.
Comment 1 David Jorm 2013-06-24 00:59:28 EDT
The Apache Tomcat team does not agree that this is a valid security flaw; they contend that an application performing untrusted deserialization is inherently insecure. However, the issue has been fixed as a code cleanup in this commit:
