Comment 8 Fedora Update System 2012-12-19 08:29:35 UTC
tomcat-7.0.33-1.fc16 has been pushed to the Fedora 16 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.

Comment 11 David Jorm 2013-02-13 05:10:13 UTC
The CSRF prevention filter was introduced in tomcat 6.0.30, as noted in the changelog:

http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-6.0-doc/changelog.html

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 ships tomcat 6.0.24, and does not include the CSRF prevention filter. Therefore it is not affected by this flaw.

Comment 12 Vincent Danen 2013-02-13 23:20:09 UTC
External References:

http://tomcat.apache.org/security-6.html#Fixed_in_Apache_Tomcat_6.0.36
http://tomcat.apache.org/security-7.html#Fixed_in_Apache_Tomcat_7.0.32

Statement:

This issue did not affect the versions of tomcat5 as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and tomcat6 as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 as they did not include the CSRF prevention filter.
