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 directory traversal vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number, the Apache Tomcat instance listening on the remote host is 7.0.x prior to 7.0.65, or 8.0.x prior to 8.0.27. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerability:
- A directory traversal vulnerability exists in Tomcat when accessing resources via ServletContext methods using paths beginning with '/..'. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by sending a specially crafted request, to obtain a directory listing for the directory in which the application was deployed.
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 7.0.65 / 8.0.27 or later.
