The remote Apache Tomcat service may be affected by multiple
According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache
Tomcat 6.0.x listening on the remote host is a version prior to
6.0.39. It is, therefore, potentially affected by the following
- The version of Java used to build the application
could generate Javadoc containing a frame injection
- The fix for CVE-2005-2090 was not complete and the
application does not reject requests with multiple
Content-Length HTTP headers or with Content-Length
HTTP headers when using chunked encoding.
- The fix for CVE-2012-3544 was not complete and limits
are not properly applied to chunk extensions and
whitespaces in certain trailing headers. This error
could allow denial of service attacks. (CVE-2013-4322)
- The application allows XML External Entity (XXE)
processing that could disclose sensitive information.
- An error exists related to the 'disableURLRewriting'
configuration option and session IDs. (CVE-2014-0033)
Note that Nessus did not actually test for these flaws, but instead
has relied on the version in Tomcat's banner or error page so this may
be a false positive.
