The remote web server is affected by a denial of service
According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache
Tomcat 7.x listening on the remote host is prior to 7.0.23. It is,
therefore, affected by a denial of service vulnerability.
Large numbers of crafted form parameters can cause excessive CPU
consumption due to hash collisions.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied
only on the application's self-reported version number.
See also :
Upgrade to Apache Tomcat version 7.0.23 or later. Alternatively, as a
workaround, set the 'maxPostSize' configuration variable to the lowest
sensible value required to support your hosted applications.
