There is a vulnerability in the URL pattern matching functionality of BEA WebLogic Server that could allow URL restrictions to be bypassed.
BEA Systems describes WebLogic Server as "an industrial-strength application infrastructure for developing, integrating, securing, and managing distributed Java applications." The WebLogic Server provides a feature that allows an administrator to restrict access to certain URLs. There is a vulnerability in this URL pattern matching feature that could cause patterns ending in "*" rather than "/*" to be evaluated as wildcard patterns.
According to the BEA Security Advisory,
A remote user could access restricted URLs that were previously protected by specific URL pattern matching syntax.
