Apache Tomcat 7.0.x < 7.0.33 Session Fixation

This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by a security bypass
vulnerability.

Description :

According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache
Tomcat 7.0 listening on the remote host is prior to 7.0.33. It is,
therefore, affected by an error related to HTML form authentication
and session fixation that allows an attacker to carry out requests
using a victim's credentials.

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