Synopsis :

The remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by multiple

Description :

According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache
Tomcat 4.x listening on the remote host is prior to 4.1.36. It is,
therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Requests containing multiple 'content-length' headers
are not rejected as invalid. This error can allow
web-cache poisoning, cross-site scripting attacks and
information disclosure. (CVE-2005-2090)

- An input sanitization error exists that can allow
disclosure of sensitive information via directory
traversal. This vulnerability is exposed when the
server is configured to use the 'Proxy' module.

- 'Accept-Language' headers are not validated properly,
which can allow cross-site scripting attacks.

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead
relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
