[SECURITY] CVE-2018-1305 Security constraint annotations applied too late
CVE-2018-1305 Security constraint annotations applied too late
Versions Affected: Apache Tomcat 9.0.0.M1 to 9.0.4 Apache Tomcat 8.5.0 to 8.5.27 Apache Tomcat 8.0.0.RC1 to 8.0.49 Apache Tomcat 7.0.0 to 7.0.84
Description: Security constraints defined by annotations of Servlets 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 authorised to access them.
Mitigation: Users of the affected versions should apply one of the following mitigations. Upgrade to: - Apache Tomcat 9.0.5 or later - Apache Tomcat 8.5.28 or later - Apache Tomcat 8.0.50 or later - Apache Tomcat 7.0.85 or later
