FreeBSD : tomcat -- information disclosure vulnerability (3383e706-4fc3-11df-83fb-0015587e2cc1)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 45613


The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


The Apache software foundation reports :

The 'WWW-Authenticate' header for BASIC and DIGEST authentication includes a realm name. If a <realm-name> element is specified for the application in web.xml it will be used. However, a <realm-name> is not specified then Tomcat will generate one.

In some circumstances this can expose the local hostname or IP address of the machine running Tomcat.


Update the affected packages.
