Subject exploting tomcat vulnerability with example
Date Wed, 19 Sep 2012 09:02:15 GMT
Hi all,

For my research work I want to have different attacking scenarios which 
exploits vulnerability of JAVA based applications. This java 
applications can be just any web-application, desktopapplication or any 

For this, I was thinking to exploit vulnerabilities of tomcat itself 
(because it is in java). I went through different vulnerabilities of 
different versions of tomcat on apache tomcat's official site. They have 
provided information about what is the vulnerability and what is its 

But I am looking for some real time example by which I can exhibit the 
exploitation of tomcat’s vulnerability. The version of the tomcat can be 
just any. I would like to try vulnerabilities like authentication 
bypass, information disclosure or some other which really compromises 
the security.

Could anybody please suggest some source where I can get step by step 
information about exploiting tomcat’s vulnerability with example ? It 
would be nice if the example web application used for exploitation is 
also in java.

I would really appreciate your any kind of help regarding this.
