Apache Tomcat 8.0.0.RC1 < 8.0.45 Cache Poisoning

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
8.0.0.RC1 or later but prior to 8.0.45. 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.
