The remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by multiple
According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache
Tomcat 6.0 listening on the remote host is prior to 6.0.28. It is,
therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities:
- If a web app is configured to use BASIC or DIGEST
authentication and the 'realm-name' attribute is not
configured in that web app's 'web.xml' file, the remote
server's hostname or IP will be included in replies.
- An error exists in the handling of invalid values in
the 'Transfer-Encoding' header of a request. An attacker
can exploit this to cause a denial of service or to
disclose sensitive information. (CVE-2010-2227)
Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead
relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
