Subject [SECURITY] CVE-2019-17569 HTTP Request Smuggling
Date Mon, 24 Feb 2020 12:46:59 GMT
CVE-2019-17569 HTTP Request Smuggling

Severity: Low

Vendor: The Apache Software Foundation

Versions Affected:
Apache Tomcat 9.0.28 to 9.0.30
Apache Tomcat 8.5.48 to 8.5.50
Apache Tomcat 7.0.98 to 7.0.99

The refactoring in 9.0.28, 8.5.48 and 7.0.98 introduced a regression.
The result of the regression was that invalid Transfer-Encoding headers
were incorrectly processed leading to a possibility of HTTP Request
Smuggling if Tomcat was located behind a reverse proxy that incorrectly
handled the invalid Transfer-Encoding header in a particular manner.
Such a reverse proxy is considered unlikely.

- Upgrade to Apache Tomcat 9.0.31 or later
- Upgrade to Apache Tomcat 8.5.51 or later
- Upgrade to Apache Tomcat 7.0.100 or later

This issue was found by @ZeddYu and reported responsibly to the Apache
Tomcat Security Team.
