Host where the staff takes pride in making customers happy

We'd like to stop and thank you for EXCELLENT uptime and performance.

We bang on this VPS all day long, all week long, and it's been months since there's been a single hiccup or slowdown.

So thanks for the great service over the past 4-5 months!!

Tomcat Ghostcat vulnerability

PostedMon, 2 Mar 2020 01:01 AM UTC
Last UpdateMon, 2 Mar 2020 21:41 PM UTC (26 days ago)

For details see https://www.chaitin.cn/en/ghostcat

To see if you have the issue run: netstat -ntpl | grep 8009 and it will list the process listening on that port.  Check if it is bound to the public IP address (vs. a localhost IP address).

To mitigate the issue add an address="" attribute to the Tomcat Connector for port 8009.

If you have Tomcat in /usr/local/tomcat; then edit /usr/local/tomcat/conf/server.xml

<Connector port="8009" protocol="AJP/1.3" redirectPort="8443" />


<Connector port="8009" address="" protocol="AJP/1.3" redirectPort="8443" />

Then restart tomcat; e.g. with /etc/init.d/tomcat restart

Then re-check the ports that you have open and make sure port 8009 is only available from the local IP.  e.g.
# netstat -ntpl | grep 8009
tcp6 0 0 :::* LISTEN 11615/java

If you need our assistance resolving this issue, please just reply to the email we have likely already sent you on this issue.  Should we need to log into the server, please ensure we have access there per https://rimuhosting.com/knowledgebase/rimuhosting/rimuhosting-ssh-access else we would need to restart your server in order to enable our access.
