Apache Tomcat 6.0.x < 6.0.37 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 66426

Synopsis

The remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache Tomcat 6.0 listening on the remote host is prior to 6.0.37. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An error exists related to chunked transfer encoding and extensions that allows limited denial of service attacks. (CVE-2012-3544)

- An error exists related to HTML form authentication and session fixation that allows an attacker to carry out requests using a victim's credentials. (CVE-2013-2067)

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

Solution

Upgrade to Apache Tomcat version 6.0.37 or later.
