SynopsisThe remote web server is affected by a security constraint bypass vulnerability
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache Tomcat 7.0.12 or 7.0.13 listening on the remote host is affected by a security constraint bypass vulnerability.
Fixes for CVE-2011-1088 and CVE-2011-1183 introduced an error in 'core/StandardWrapper.java' which allows an incorrect class loader to be used. The effect of this is that security constraints configured through annotations are ignored on the initial request to a servlet.
However, further requests are secured properly.
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 7.0.14 or later.
