Apache Tomcat 7.0.x < 7.0.40 Multiple Vulnerabilities
Low Nessus Plugin ID 66428
SynopsisThe remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache Tomcat 7.0 listening on the remote host is prior to 7.0.40. 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.
SolutionUpdate to Apache Tomcat version 7.0.40 or later.
