The remote web server is susceptible to a cross-site scripting attack.
According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache
Tomcat 5.5.x listening on the remote host is earlier than 5.5.32 and
as such, is reportedly affected by a cross-site scripting
vulnerability in its HTML Manager interface.
An input validation error exists in the HTML Manager interface of
Tomcat that may allow a remote attacker to inject code into a user's
browser via a crafted URL.
Note that Nessus did not actually test for the flaw but instead has
relied on the version in Tomcat's banner or error page.

Upgrade to Apache Tomcat version 5.5.32 or later.
