Synopsis :

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

Description :

Tomcat Security Team reports :

Tomcat does not properly restrict XSLT stylesheets, which allows
remote attackers to bypass security-manager restrictions and read
arbitrary files via a crafted web application that provides an XML
external entity declaration in conjunction with an entity reference,
related to an XML External Entity (XXE) issue.

An integer overflow, when operated behind a reverse proxy, allows
remote attackers to conduct HTTP request smuggling attacks via a
crafted Content-Length HTTP header.

An integer overflow in parseChunkHeader allows remote attackers to
cause a denial of service (resource consumption) via a malformed chunk
size in chunked transfer coding of a request during the streaming of
data.
