Apache Tomcat 4.x < 4.1.36 Multiple Vulnerabilities
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 17726
SynopsisThe remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache Tomcat 4.x listening on the remote host is prior to 4.1.36. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- Requests containing multiple 'content-length' headers are not rejected as invalid. This error can allow web-cache poisoning, cross-site scripting attacks and information disclosure. (CVE-2005-2090)
- An input sanitization error exists that can allow disclosure of sensitive information via directory traversal. This vulnerability is exposed when the server is configured to use the 'Proxy' module.
- 'Accept-Language' headers are not validated properly, which can allow cross-site scripting attacks.
Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpdate to Apache Tomcat version 4.1.36 or later.
