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: 3.4
SynopsisThe remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by a security bypass vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache Tomcat 7.0 listening on the remote host is prior to 7.0.33. It is, therefore, affected by an error related to HTML form authentication and session fixation that allows an attacker to carry out requests using a victim's credentials.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpdate to Apache Tomcat version 7.0.33 or later.
