Tomcat 7.x listening on the remote host is prior to 7.0.11, It is,
therefore affected by a security bypass vulnerability.

be ignored which could lead to some areas of the applications not
being protected as expected.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied
only on the application's self-reported version number.
