FreeBSD : tomcat -- information disclosure vulnerability (3383e706-4fc3-11df-83fb-0015587e2cc1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

The Apache software foundation reports :

The 'WWW-Authenticate' header for BASIC and DIGEST authentication
includes a realm name. If a <realm-name> element is specified for the
application in web.xml it will be used. However, a <realm-name> is not
specified then Tomcat will generate one.

In some circumstances this can expose the local hostname or IP address
of the machine running Tomcat.
