Apache Tomcat 7.0.x < 7.0.52 Content-Type DoS
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 72692
SynopsisThe remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache Tomcat 7.0.x listening on the remote host is prior to 7.0.52. It is, therefore, affected by an error related to handling 'Content-Type' HTTP headers and multipart requests such as file uploads.
Note that this error exists because of the bundled version of Apache Commons FileUpload.
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 7.0.52 or later.
