Apache Tomcat < 8.0.0-RC10 Multiple Vulnerabilities
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 121122
SynopsisThe remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number, the Apache Tomcat instance listening on the remote host is prior to 8.0.0-RC10. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities:
- The fix for CVE-2012-3544 was not complete and limits are not properly applied to chunk extensions and whitespaces in certain trailing headers. This error could allow denial of service attacks. (CVE-2013-4322)
- The application allows XML External Entity (XXE) processing that could disclose sensitive 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 8.0.0-RC10 or later.
