Issue/Introduction

 

We're running a CA Access Gateway (SPS) 12.8SP3 and we'd like to know
if this one is affected by "CVE-2020-9484 Tomcat Vulnerability" ?

 

Environment

 

SiteMinder 12.8SP3

 

Resolution

 

At first glance, as you mentioned, this vulnerability affects Tomcat
7.0.0 to 7.0.103 :

  CVE-2020-9484 Detail

In CA Access Gateway (SPS) 12.8SP4, the Tomcat 7 has been upgraded
already to 7.0.104 which is not affected by that vulnerability.

So the solution is to upgrade the CA Access Gateway (SPS) to 12.8SP4.

About the Web Agent Option Pack, you just have to patch the Tomcat
version you run as we don't provide the Tomcat version. It's on your
responsability.

I've checked and Web Agent Option Pack 12.52SP1CR10 64bit is supported
on Tomcat 8.5 :
