Apache Tomcat < 7.0.2 Denial of Service and Information Disclosure
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 121115
SynopsisThe remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by denial of service and information disclosure vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number, the Apache Tomcat instance listening on the remote host is prior to 7.0.2. It is, therefore, affected by a denial of service vulnerability which could also lead to information disclosure. A remote attacker could trigger flaws in the handling of the Transfer-Encoding header to cause a denial of service or potentially leak information.
Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to Apache Tomcat version 7.0.2 or later.
