Description Nick Barkas 2007-03-05 21:10:05 UTC
The Apache Tomcat Connector versions 1.2.19 and 1.2.20 have a stack buffer overflow vulnerability in the map_uri_to_worker() in the mod_jk.so library, triggered by certain long URLs. This allows for arbitrary remote code execution.

See: http://tomcat.apache.org/security-jk.html

Fix: The attached patch updates the www/mod_jk port to 1.2.21, which should have this vulnerability fixed. It would probably be a good idea to make note of this vulnerability in the VuXML document, as it appears to be rather severe.

Patch attached with submission follows:
How-To-Repeat: I have not seen any specific exploits.
