           Summary: GET used for unsafe operations
           Product: Tomcat 5
           Version: 5.5.23
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Webapps:Manager
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: erharold@gmail.com


The Tomcat manager app (usually found at http://hostname:8080/manager/html) uses
HTTP GET and a links for unsafe operations such as restarting, redeploying,
starting and stopping the server. For example,

http://hostname:8080/manager/html/stop?path=/host-manager

Protecting the links with JavaScript "are you sure messages" is an unreliable
kludge.

These links should be redesigned to use POST instead of GET. 

I suspect I don't have to explain the importance of this to this group, but just
in case:
