From Mark Thomas <> via bugtraq:

Vulnerability announcement:
CVE-2008-5519: Apache Tomcat mod_jk information disclosure vulnerability

Versions Affected:
mod_jk 1.2.0 to 1.2.26

Situations where faulty clients set Content-Length without providing
data, or where a user submits repeated requests very quickly may permit
one user to view the response associated with a different user's request.

Upgrade to mod_jk 1.2.27 or later

Comment 2 Alex Legler (RETIRED) archtester gentoo-dev Security 2009-04-10 20:28:53 UTC
CVE-2008-5519 (
  The JK Connector (aka mod_jk) 1.2.0 through 1.2.26 in Apache Tomcat
  allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information via an
  arbitrary request from an HTTP client, in opportunistic circumstances
  involving (1) a request from a different client that included a
  Content-Length header but no POST data or (2) a rapid series of
  requests, related to noncompliance with the AJP protocol's
  requirements for requests containing Content-Length headers.
