Apache Tomcat 8.0.0 < 8.5.55 Remote Code Execution

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 136807


The remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability


The version of Tomcat installed on the remote host is prior to 7.0.104. It is, therefore, affected by a remote code execution vulnerability as referenced in the fixed_in_apache_tomcat_8.5.55_security-8 advisory. Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to Apache Tomcat version 8.5.55 or later.
