Apache Tomcat 7.x < 7.0.11 @ServletSecurity Annotation Security Bypass

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote web server may be affected by a security bypass
vulnerability.

Description :

According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache
Tomcat 7.x listening on the remote host is earlier than 7.0.11 and as
such, may be affected by a security bypass vulnerability.

When a web application is started, 'ServletSecurity' annotations might
be ignored which could lead to some areas of the applications not
being protected as expected.

Note that Nessus did not actually test for the flaw but instead has
relied on the version in Tomcat's banner or error page.
