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: 6.6
SynopsisThe remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by multiple remote denial of service vulnerabilities.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache Tomcat 7.0 listening on the remote host is prior to 7.0.28. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- A flaw exists within the parseHeaders() function that allows an attacker, via a crafted header, to cause a remote denial of service. (CVE-2012-2733)
- An error exists related to the 'NIO' connector when HTTPS and 'sendfile' are enabled that can force the application into an infinite loop. (CVE-2012-4534)
Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to Apache Tomcat version 7.0.28 or later.
