Apache Tomcat 6.0.x < 6.0.45 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Synopsis :

The remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by multiple
vulnerabilities.

Description :

According to its self-reported version number, the Apache Tomcat
service running on the remote host is 6.0.x prior to 6.0.45. It is,
therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the
getResource(), getResourceAsStream(), and
getResourcePaths() ServletContext methods due to a
failure to properly sanitize user-supplied input. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a
crafted path traversal request, to gain access to the
listing of directory contents. (CVE-2015-5174)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to
a failure to enforce access restrictions when handling
directory requests that are missing trailing slashes. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to
enumerate valid directories. (CVE-2015-5345)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists that
allows a specially crafted web application to load the
StatusManagerServlet. An attacker can exploit this to
gain unauthorized access to a list of all deployed
applications and a list of the HTTP request lines for
all requests currently being processed. (CVE-2016-0706)

- A security bypass vulnerability exists due to a flaw
in the StandardManager, PersistentManager, and cluster
implementations that is triggered when handling
persistent sessions. An unauthenticated, remote attacker
can exploit this, via a crafted object in a session, to
bypass the security manager and execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2016-0714)

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