    jsp%00 code reveal bug?

    Fred Grott Newbie

      I am seeing this bug on JBoss 3.2.1

      basically the jsp%00 bug that we have seen in recent 18 m,onths on jetty and tomcat..

      URLs I have tested thus far are:


      There is security focus report filed onthis bug any news on which minor release past 3.2.1 might fix it?

          Yup, I'm seeing the same problem. It affects all JSPs afaict. Has this really been around for over a year??

            Hmm... this seems related to another bug.

            If you use a capitalized .JSP for a .jsp file in Windows, it will reveal the source code. Haven't tested it on a Linux machine, so I don't know if these bugs are Windows-specific. If so, it may be some sort of mismatch due to Window's case-insensitivity. Probably matches a filename check but fails an exact search, so it gets interpretted as a html/text content. That's my gut suspicion...

            Another possibility is that there's an error in the code with respect to the matching. I'll know more once I try it on Linux.

            Anyone know offhand what package the source with the bug might be in? If so, I may try fixing it.
