Synopsis

The remote host is running a version of Symantec Content Analysis that is affected by Multiple Vulnerabilities

Description

The version of Symantec Content Analysis running on the remote host is prior to version 2.3.5.1. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities:

- A bug in the handling of the pipelined requests in Apache Tomcat 9.0.0.M1 to 9.0.0.M18, 8.5.0 to 8.5.12, 8.0.0.RC1 to 8.0.42, 7.0.0 to 7.0.76, and 6.0.0 to 6.0.52, when send file was used, results in the pipelined request being lost when send file processing of the previous request completed. This could result in responses appearing to be sent for the wrong request. (CVE-2017-5647)

- The error page mechanism of the Java Servlet Specification requires that, when an error occurs and an error page is configured for the error that occurred, the original request and response are forwarded to the error page. This means that the request is presented to the error page with the original HTTP method. If the error page is a static file, expected behaviour is to serve content of the file as if processing a GET request, regardless of the actual HTTP method.
(CVE-2017-5664)

Solution

Refer to vendor advisory (Symantec SYMSA1419) for suggested workaround, or upgrade to an unaffected version.
