Apache Tomcat 7.0.41 < 7.0.79 Cache Poisoning Vulnerability

This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by a cache poisoning
vulnerability.

Description :

The version of Apache Tomcat installed on the remote host is 7.0.41
or later but prior to 7.0.79. It is, therefore, affected by a flaw in
the CORS filter where the HTTP Vary header is not properly added. This
allows a remote attacker to conduct client-side and server-side cache
poisoning attacks.

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