The remote web server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache
Tomcat 6.0.x listening on the remote host is prior to 6.0.30. It is,
therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- An error in the access restriction on a 'ServletContext'
attribute that holds the location of the work directory
in Tomcat's SecurityManager. A malicious web application
can modify the location of the working directory which
then allows improper read and write access to arbitrary
files and directories in the context of Tomcat.
- An input validation error exists in the Manager
application in that it fails to filter the 'sort' and
'orderBy' input parameters. (CVE-2010-4172)
- An input validation error exists in the HTML manager
application in that it fails to filter various input
data before returning it to the browser. (CVE-2011-0013)
Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead
relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
