Apache Tomcat < 6.0.10 Directory Traversal

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 121112

Synopsis

The remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by a directory traversal vulnerability.

Description

According to its self-reported version number, the Apache Tomcat instance listening on the remote host is prior to 6.0.10. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerability :

- A directory traversal vulnerability exists in Tomcat due to improper handling of certain path delimiters when behind a proxy. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by sending a URI that contains directory traversal characters, to disclose the contents of files located outside of the server's restricted path.

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

Solution

Upgrade to Apache Tomcat version 6.0.10 or later.
