Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Apache Tomcat. A remote user can execute arbitrary code on the target system in certain cases. IBM Power Hardware Management Console is affected.

A remote user can upload arbitrary JSP code and then cause the code to be executed in certain limited cases.

Systems with all of the following conditions are affected:

- A version of Java where 'java.io.File' contains a null byte injection flaw (e.g., 1.7.0 update 25 or prior)

- A web application using the Servlet 3.0 File Upload feature or using Apache Commons File Upload 1.2.1 or prior

- A Tomcat-writable file location within a deployed web application (when the Servlet 3.0 File Upload feature is used)

- A custom listener for JMX connections (e.g., the JmxRemoteListener) configured and able to load classes from Tomcat's common class loader and bound to an address other than localhost

Pierre Ernst of the VMware Security Engineering, Communications & Response group (vSECR) reported this vulnerability (via the Pivotal security team).

Impact:   A remote user can upload and execute arbitrary code on the target system.
Solution:   IBM has issued a fix for IBM Power Hardware Management Console.
