New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 3.6
SynopsisThe remote web server is affected by a security bypass vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache Tomcat 7.x listening on the remote host is prior to 7.0.11, It is, therefore affected by a security bypass vulnerability.
When a web application is started, 'ServletSecurity' annotations might be ignored which could lead to some areas of the applications not being protected as expected.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to Apache Tomcat version 7.0.11 or later.
