Subject Information on a hacked tomcat 5
Date Wed, 13 Apr 2005 20:18:56 GMT


If someone in the net, found out, by any reason, our admin or manager user and password, what
resources he can get besides turn on/off the apps, looking tomcat-users.xml?

Can he/she get info on the application context.xml like database user and passwords?
Can he/she deploy an exe or script for converting a server in a zombie?
Change the server init scripts?
Change the root password?

Thanks very much,

Lorenzo Jimenez
