Apache Tomcat 7.0.x < 7.0.33 Session Fixation

This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Apache Tomcat service may be 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 earlier than Tomcat 7.0.33.
Consequently, it could be affected by an error related to HTML form
authentication and session fixation that could allow an attacker to
carry out requests using a victim's credentials.

Note that Nessus did not actually test for this flaw but instead has
relied on the version in Tomcat's banner or error page so this may be
a false positive.

Update to Apache Tomcat version 7.0.33 or later.
