Most of the links lead to the corresponding files at CERT or other organisations. So changes take place immediately, especially which patches should be installed or which changes in the configuration should be made to avoid this vulnerability. Some of the files are transferred by FTP.

By the way: If we're not publishing well-known risks inheritant in any widely used platform or program that doesn't mean this particular platform or program is safe to use!

Chosen message with ID ae-201205-074

System: Mandriva Enterprise Server
Topic: Vulnerability in tomcat5
Links: MDVSA-2012:085, CVE-2011-4858, CVE-2012-0022
ID: ae-201205-074

A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in tomcat5. Apache Tomcat 5.5.x before 5.5.35, 6.x before 6.0.34, and 7.x before 7.0.23 uses an inefficient approach for handling parameters, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via a request that contains many parameters and parameter values. The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
