Medium Nessus Plugin ID 125529
SynopsisThe remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAccording to the version of the tomcat packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :
- When the default servlet in Apache Tomcat versions 9.0.0.M1 to 9.0.11, 8.5.0 to 8.5.33 and 7.0.23 to 7.0.90 returned a redirect to a directory (e.g.
redirecting to '/foo/' when the user requested '/foo') a specially crafted URL could be used to cause the redirect to be generated to any URI of the attackers choice.(CVE-2018-11784)
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
