low Nessus Plugin ID 159464


The remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by a vulnerability


The version of Apache Tomcat installed on the remote host is 9.x prior to 9.0.62.

This version of Apache Tomcat does not have mitigations in place to protect against Spring4Shell (CVE-2022-22965). While this does not represent a vulnerability in Apache Tomcat itself, it is recommend to update Apache Tomcat to a version with the Spring4Shell mitigations present.
