Apache Geronimo 2.1.x vulnerabilities

This page lists all security vulnerabilities fixed in maintenance releases or interim builds of Apache Geronimo 2.1. Each vulnerability is given a security impact rating by either the Apache Geronimo team or by the dependent project supplying the fix - please note that this rating is not uniform and will vary from project to project. We also list the versions of Apache Geronimo the flaw is known to affect, and where a flaw has not been verified list the version with a question mark.

Please send comments or corrections for these vulnerabilities to the Geronimo Security mailing list.

Known vulnerabilities (targeting build 20080827)


Upgraded from DWR 2.0.3 to 2.0.5 to include the following security fixes -

  • DWR version 2.0.5 fixed 1 XSS vulnerabilities in r2077
    r2077 | joe | 2008-06-22 09:28:22 -0400 (Sun, 22 Jun 2008) | 7 lines
    Fix for XSS issue in ExceptionHandler:
    PartialResponse.fromOrdinal() throws a NumberFormatException trying to
    parse the 'partialResponse' parameter.  This exception is never caught,
    prompting UrlProcessor to invoke DWR's default ExceptionHandler class,
    which calls out.println(cause.getMessage()), thereby causing the XSS.

Affects: 2.1-2.1.2

Fixed in Geronimo 2.1.3-SNAPSHOT build 20080825 or later
