Apache Tomcat 7.0.x < 7.0.40 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 66428


The remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache Tomcat 7.0 listening on the remote host is prior to 7.0.40. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An error exists related to 'AsyncListeners' that throw 'RuntimeExceptions' that allow elements of certain requests to be disclosed in responses to other requests.

- It is possible to upload a malicious JSP to a Tomcat server and subsequently trigger execution of that JSP.

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


Update to Apache Tomcat version 7.0.40 or later.
