A directory traversal vulnerability has been discovered in Apache mod_jk.
<product type="ebuild">mod_jk</product>
<announced>August 19, 2007</announced>
<revised>August 19, 2007: 01</revised>
<package name="www-apache/mod_jk" auto="yes" arch="*">
<unaffected range="ge">1.2.23</unaffected>
<vulnerable range="lt">1.2.23</vulnerable>
Apache mod_jk is a connector for the Tomcat web server.
Apache mod_jk decodes the URL within Apache before passing them to
Tomcat, which decodes them a second time.
<impact type="low">
A remote attacker could browse a specially crafted URL on an Apache
server running mod_jk, possibly gaining access to restricted resources.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Apache mod_jk users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=www-apache/mod_jk-1.2.23&quot;</code>
