Trustwave App Scanner Updates for June 7, 2018

The latest release of Trustwave App Scanner for versions 8.6 and 8.7 detects vulnerabilities in IBM WebSphere and Apache Tomcat as well as provides a smart attack update for cross site request forgery. Details are below. The appropriate update for your version of Trustwave App Scanner should have downloaded automatically. If needed, manual update instructions are available at the end of this update.

Web Server Vulnerabilities Updates

IBM WebSphere Sensitive Information Disclosure

IBM WebSphere Application Server 7.0, 8.0, 8.5, and 9.0 could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information caused by improper handling of Administrative Console panel fields. When exploited an attacker could browse the file system. IBM X-Force ID: 134933.

Apache Tomcat Insecure CORS Headers

Security constraints defined by annotations of Servlets in Apache Tomcat 9.0.0.M1 to 9.0.4, 8.5.0 to 8.5.27, 8.0.0.RC1 to 8.0.49 and 7.0.0 to 7.0.84 were only applied once a Servlet had been loaded. Because security constraints defined in this way apply to the URL pattern and any URLs below that point, it was possible - depending on the order Servlets were loaded - for some security constraints not to be applied. This could have exposed resources to users who were not authorized to access them.

Apache HTTP Server Denial of Service Vulnerability (CVE-2018-1303)

Smart Attack Updates

Cross Site Request Forgery

The smart attack's error list is updated with a new entry which improves the detection capability.
