The remote web server is affected by a cross-site scripting
According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache
Tomcat 5.5.x listening on the remote host is prior to 5.5.32. It is,
therefore, 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 has not tested for this issue but has instead relied
only on the application's self-reported version number.
