The remote Apache Tomcat service is potentially affected by multiple
According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache
Tomcat 7.0.x listening on the remote host is a version prior to
7.0.53. It is, therefore, potentially affected by the following
- An error exists related to chunk size and chunked
requests that could allow denial of service attacks.
- An error exists related to XSLT handling and security
managers that could allow security bypass related to
external XML entities. (CVE-2014-0096)
- An error exists related to content length header
handling and using the application behind a reverse
proxy that could allow security bypass. (CVE-2014-0099)
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
could be a false positive.
