Apache Tomcat 3.x < 3.2.2 Malformed URL JSP Source Disclosure

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Apache Tomcat service is affected by a JSP source
disclosure vulnerability.

Description :

The remote Apache Tomcat install is affected by an information
disclosure vulnerability which allows JSP source code to be sent
as a response to an HTTP request that does not end with an HTTP
protocol specification.

This install is also likely to be affected by a cross-site scripting
vulnerability and an additional information disclosure vulnerability,
although Nessus did not test explicitly for either of those issues.
