From ${URL} :

Apache Tomcat through versions 7.0.88, 8.0.52, 8.5.31 and 9.0.8 have defaults settings for the CORS filter that are insecure and enable 'supportsCredentials' for all origins.

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.
Comment 1 Miroslav Šulc gentoo-dev 2019-02-10 14:30:42 UTC
i guess this will take some time, because:

* www-servers/tomcat:7 - is fine, we have only 7.0.92 (stable)
* www-servers/tomcat:8 - we have affected 8.0.52 (stable) and unaffected 8.0.53 (unstable), which depends on >=dev-java/ant-core-1.9.13 which is not stable yet
* www-servers/tomcat:8.5 - we have affected 8.5.31 (stable) and unaffected 8.5.37 (unstable), which depends on >=dev-java/ant-core-1.9.13 which is not stable yet
* www-servers/tomcat:9 - we have affected 9.0.8 (stable) and unaffected 9.0.{14,16] (unstable), both depend on >=dev-java/ant-core-1.9.13 which is not stable yet and also on virtual/jdk-11 which is masked atm

we can stabilize ant-core-1.9.13 sooner than at 2019-02-24 and hence we could remove the affected versions for slots 8 and 8.5, but idk when we will unmask java 11, gyakovlev would probably know better. and it will take some time before it will go stable.

shall we proceed with ant-core-1.9.13 and/or 1.10.5 stabilization to fix at least slot 8 and 8.5? there were some issues with these new versions but all that have been reported have been solved.

9.0.7 is still vulnerable and stable on amd64.  Other slots are good.  Please decide how to approach slot 9.

@java, ping. dev-java/ant-core dependencies look to be resolved now.
Comment 5 Aaron Bauman Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2019-08-17 16:09:01 UTC
nevermind, the virtual is still masked
