Jakarta Tomcat 5.0.19 (Coyote/1.1) and Tomcat 4.1.24 (Coyote/1.0) allows remote attackers to poison the web cache bypass web application firewall protection and conduct XSS attacks via an HTTP request with both a "Transfer-Encoding: chunked" header and a Content-Length header which causes Tomcat to incorrectly handle and forward the body of the request in a way that causes the receiving server to process it as a separate HTTP request aka "HTTP Request Smuggling."
