Hi,

I've an application deployed on Tomcat 7, and this morning I noticed two messages on Tomcat console:

Did you see me on the stderr window?
Did you see me on the browser window as well?


Somebody managed to write remotely these messages. Do I have to be worried ? did somebody hack my website ?


thanks,

Frank

When I googled for "did you see me on the stderr window" this was one of the pages returned: http://tomcat.10.x6.nabble.com/DO-NOT-REPLY-Bug-18462-System-err-gets-overriden-to-output-to-System-out-td2226552.html. Does that help?

On another Forum I was given the solution:

This is produced by a example jsp (webapps/examples/jsp/simpletag/foo.jsp) with the following lines:

<eg:log>
Did you see me on the stderr window?
</eg:log>

Yes, that bug report referred to that JSP.

So apparently, someone accessed that JSP deployed on your server.
