Apache Tomcat 7.0.x < 7.0.50 Multiple Vulnerabilities
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 72691
SynopsisThe remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache Tomcat 7.0.x listening on the remote host is prior to 7.0.50. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- The fix for CVE-2012-3544 was not complete and limits are not properly applied to chunk extensions and whitespaces in certain trailing headers. This error could allow denial of service attacks. (CVE-2013-4322)
- The application allows XML External Entity (XXE) processing that could disclose sensitive information.
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 7.0.50 or later.
