Apache Tomcat HTTP PUT Request Processing Flaw Lets Remote Users Execute Arbitrary JSP Code on the Target System
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1039552
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1039552
CVE Reference:   CVE-2017-12617   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Oct 11 2017
Impact:   Execution of arbitrary code via network, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 7.0.0 - 7.0.81, 8.0.0.RC1 - 8.0.46, 9.0.0.M1 - 9.0.0
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Apache Tomcat. A remote user can execute arbitrary code on the target system.

A remote user can send a specially crafted HTTP PUT request to upload arbitrary JSP code to the target system and then request the JSP file to cause the web service to execute the JSP code on the target system. The code will run with the privileges of the target web service.

Systems with HTTP PUT requests enabled are affected (e.g., with the DefaultServlet 'init-param' 'param-name' of 'readonly' set to a 'param-value' of 'false').

The vendor was notified on September 20, 2017.

Impact:   A remote user can upload and execute arbitrary JSP code on the target system.
Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix (7.0.82, 8.0.47, 9.0.1).

The vendor advisories are available at:
