The remote Apache Tomcat service is potentially affected by multiple
According to its self-reported version number, the Apache Tomcat
listening on the remote host is earlier than Tomcat 6.0.13 and is
potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities:
- Requests containing multiple 'content-length' headers
are not rejected as invalid. This error can allow
web-cache poisoning, cross-site scripting attacks and
information disclosure. (CVE-2005-2090)
- The remote Apache Tomcat install may be vulnerable to
a cross-site scripting attack if the JSP and Servlet
examples are enabled. Several of these examples do
not properly validate user input. (CVE-2007-1355)
Note that Nessus did not actually test for the flaws but instead has
relied on the version in Tomcat's banner or error page so this may be
a false positive.
