Synopsis

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

Description

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.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
