Apache Tomcat 7.0.x < 7.0.70 / 8.0.x < 8.0.36 / 8.5.x < 8.5.3 / 9.0.x < 9.0.0.M8 Denial of Service
High Nessus Plugin ID 121119
SynopsisThe remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number, the Apache Tomcat instance listening on the remote host is 7.0.x prior to 7.0.70, 8.0.x < 8.0.36, 8.5.x < 8.5.3 or 9.0.x < 9.0.0.M8. It is, therefore, affected by a denial of service vulnerability:
- A denial of service vulnerability was identified in Commons FileUpload that occurred when the length of the multipart boundary was just below the size of the buffer (4096 bytes) used to read the uploaded file if the boundary was the typical tens of bytes long.
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 7.0.70 / 8.0.36 / 8.5.3 / 9.0.0.M8 or later.
