Medium Nessus Plugin ID 102032

Synopsis

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Security Fix(es) :

When running an untrusted application under a SecurityManager it was possible, under some circumstances, for that application to retain references to the request or response objects and thereby access and/or modify information associated with another web application.
