CVE-2007-2450: Apache Tomcat XSS vulnerabilities in Manager

Severity: low (cross-site scripting)

Vendor:
The Apache Software Foundation

Versions Affected:
Tomcat 4.0.0 to 4.0.6
Tomcat 4.1.0 to 4.1.36
Tomcat 5.0.0 to 5.0.30
Tomcat 5.5.0 to 5.5.24

Description:
The Manager and Host Manager web applications do not escape some user

attack. The user must be logged in to the Manager or Host Manager web
application.

Mitigation:
1. Log out of the Manager or Host Manager application (close the
browser) once tasks requiring use of the manager have been completed.

Example:
