Apache Tomcat 7.x < 7.0.6 Manager Interface XSS

medium Nessus Plugin ID 51976
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote web server is affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability.

Description

According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache Tomcat 7.x listening on the remote host is prior to 7.0.6. It is, therefore, affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability in its HTML Manager interface. A remote attacker can exploit this to inject code into a user's browser via a crafted URL.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Update Apache Tomcat to version 7.0.6 or later.
