FreeBSD : payara -- Code execution via crafted PUT requests to JSPs (22bc5327-f33f-11e8-be46-0019dbb15b3f)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 119270
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionWhen running Apache Tomcat 7.0.0 to 7.0.79 on Windows with HTTP PUTs enabled (e.g. via setting the readonly initialisation parameter of the Default to false) it was possible to upload a JSP file to the server via a specially crafted request. This JSP could then be requested and any code it contained would be executed by the server.
SolutionUpdate the affected package.
