The remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by multiple
According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache
Tomcat 4.x listening on the remote host is prior to 4.1.0. It is,
therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- An error exists in the handling of malformed packets
that can cause the processing thread to become
unresponsive. A sequence of such requests can cause all
threads to become unresponsive. (CVE-2003-0866)
- Two example servlets, 'snoop' and a troubleshooting
servlet, disclose the Apache Tomcat installation path.
- It has also been reported that this version of Tomcat
is affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability.
The contents of a request URL are not sanitized before
being returned to the browser should an error occur.
Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead
relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
