HTTPoxy vulnerability
Comment 1 GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2016-07-20 12:46:30 UTC
CVE-2016-5388 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2016-5388):
  Apache Tomcat through 8.5.4, when the CGI Servlet is enabled, follows RFC
  3875 section 4.1.18 and therefore does not protect applications from the
  presence of untrusted client data in the HTTP_PROXY environment variable,
  which might allow remote attackers to redirect an application's outbound
  HTTP traffic to an arbitrary proxy server via a crafted Proxy header in an
  HTTP request, aka an "httpoxy" issue. NOTE: the vendor states "A mitigation
  is planned for future releases of Tomcat, tracked as CVE-2016-5388"; in
  other words, this is not a CVE ID for a vulnerability.

v8.5.x branch was fixed via v8.5.5 in https://gitweb.gentoo.org/repo/gentoo.git/commit/www-servers/tomcat?id=3de55fc614b7eb6aa2edebb09e059cbc0a0ab1e2

v8.0.x branch was fixed via v8.0.37 in https://gitweb.gentoo.org/repo/gentoo.git/commit/www-servers/tomcat?id=3de55fc614b7eb6aa2edebb09e059cbc0a0ab1e2

We are only missing a bump for v7.0.x branch.


@ Maintainer(s): Are you going to bump >=www-servers/tomcat-7.0.72 as well?
Comment 3 Thomas Deutschmann gentoo-dev Security 2016-12-09 16:06:57 UTC
Stabilization of remaining tomcat-7.x happens in bug 598324.
