Apache Tomcat 7.x < 7.0.22 Multiple Vulnerabilities

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote web server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache
Tomcat 7.x listening on the remote host is prior to 7.0.22. It is,
therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists. Request
information is cached in two objects, and these objects
are not recycled at the same time. Further requests can
obtain sensitive information if certain error conditions
occur. (CVE-2011-3375)

- The web server is not properly restricting access to
the servlets that provide the functionality of the
Manager application. This can allow untrusted web
applications to access privileged internal functionality
such as gathering information on running web
applications and deploying additional web applications.

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