Description:   Multiple vulnerabilities were reported in Apache Tomcat. A remote user can bypass security controls on the target system. A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information on the target system. A remote user can hijack the target user's session. OpenVMS is affected.

A remote user can re-use the session ID in a new request to conduct session fixation attacks and potentially hijack a target user's session [CVE-2015-5346]. Systems with an application configured to use the SSL session ID as the HTTP session ID are affected. Versions 7.0.5 to 7.0.65, 8.0.0.RC1 to 8.0.30, and 9.0.0.M1 are affected.

A remote user with access to the Manager or Host Manager applications can obtain a valid CSRF token during a redirect [CVE-2015-5351]. Versions 7.0.1 to 7.0.67, 8.0.0.RC1 to 8.0.31, and 9.0.0.M1 are affected.

An application can load the internal StatusManagerServlet to obtain a list of all deployed applications and a list of the HTTP request lines for all requests currently being processed [CVE-2016-0706]. Systems running untrusted web applications under a security manager are affected. Versions 6.0.0 to 6.0.44, 7.0.0 to 7.0.67, 8.0.0.RC1 to 8.0.30, and 9.0.0.M1 are affected.

A remote user can exploit session persistence mechanisms to bypass the SecurityManager and execute arbitrary code [CVE-2016-0714]. Systems running untrusted web applications under a security manager are affected. Versions 6.0.0 to 6.0.44, 7.0.0 to 7.0.67, 8.0.0.RC1 to 8.0.30, and 9.0.0.M1 are affected.

A web application can access the ResourceLinkFactory.setGlobalContext() public method and inject a malicious global context to disrupt other web applications or read and write data owned by other web applications [CVE-2016-0763]. Systems running untrusted web applications under a security manager are affected. Versions 7.0.0 to 7.0.67, 8.0.0.RC1 to 8.0.30, and 9.0.0.M1 to 9.0.0.M2 are affected.

Impact:   A remote user can bypass security controls on the target system.

A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information on the target system.

A remote user can hijack the target user's session.

Solution:   HPE has issued a fix for CVE-2015-5346, CVE-2015-5351, CVE-2016-0706, CVE-2016-0714, and CVE-2016-0763 for OpenVMS (CSWS JAVA TOMCAT_CUMULATIVE_SECURITY_PATCH_MARCH16.BCK).
