New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by a code execution vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of Apache Tomcat installed on the remote host is 6.0.x prior to 6.0.24. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- An unspecified flaw exists in the handling of pipelined requests when 'Sendfile' was used. If sendfile processing completed quickly, it was possible for the Processor to be added to the processor cache twice. This could lead to invalid responses or information disclosure. (CVE-2017-5647)
- An unspecified flaw in error page mechanism of the DefaultServlet implementation allows a specially-crafted HTTP request to cause undesired side effects, including the removal or replacement of the custom error page. (CVE-2017-5664)
- An unspecified flaw affects servlet contexts configured as readonly=false with HTTP PUT requests allowed. An attacker can upload a JSP file to that context and execute arbitrary code.
Note that Nessus has not attempted to exploit this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to Apache Tomcat version 6.0.24 or later.
