The remote web server may be affected by a security constraint bypass
According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache
Tomcat 7.0.12 or 7.0.13 listening on the remote host may be affected
by a security constraint bypass vulnerability.
Fixes for CVE-2011-1088 and CVE-2011-1183 introduced an error in
'core/StandardWrapper.java' which allows an incorrect class loader to
be used. The effect of this is that security constraints configured
through annotations are ignored on the initial request to a servlet.
However, further requests are secured properly.
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 7.0.14 or later.
