Apache Tomcat < 6.0.13 Multiple Vulnerabilities
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 17728
SynopsisThe remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number, the Apache Tomcat instance listening on the remote host is prior to 6.0.13. 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)
- The remote Apache Tomcat install may be vulnerable to a cross-site scripting attack if the JSP and Servlet examples are enabled. Several of these examples do not properly validate user input. (CVE-2007-1355)
Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to Apache Tomcat version 6.0.13 or later.
