Apache Tomcat 6.0.x < 6.0.37 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Synopsis :

The remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by multiple
vulnerabilities.

Description :

According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache
Tomcat 6.0 listening on the remote host is prior to 6.0.37. It is,
therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An error exists related to chunked transfer encoding
and extensions that allows limited denial of service
attacks. (CVE-2012-3544)

- An error exists related to HTML form authentication and
session fixation that allows an attacker to carry out
requests using a victim's credentials. (CVE-2013-2067)

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