Technical Details:
Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Tomcat servlet and JSP engine. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems: CVE-2007-3382 It was discovered that single quotes (') in cookies were treated as a delimiter, which could lead to an information leak. CVE-2007-3385 It was discovered that the character sequence \ in cookies was handled incorrectly, which could lead to an information leak. CVE-2007-3386 It was discovered that the host manager servlet performed insufficient input validation, which could lead to cross-site scripting. CVE-2007-5342 It was discovered that the JULI logging component did not restrict its target path, resulting in potential denial of service through file overwrites. CVE-2007-5461 It was discovered that the WebDAV servlet is vulnerable to absolute path traversal. For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in version 5.5.20-2etch1. The old stable distribution (sarge) doesn't contain tomcat5.5. The unstable distribution (sid) will be fixed soon. We recommend that you upgrade your tomcat5.5 Linux Distribution Packages.

The remote host is missing an update to tomcat5.5 announced via advisory DSA 1447-1.
