Apache Tomcat 7.0.x < 7.0.50 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 72691

Synopsis

The remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

According 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.
(CVE-2013-4590)

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

Solution

Update to Apache Tomcat version 7.0.50 or later.
