New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.

Description

MultipartStream.java in Apache Commons FileUpload before 1.3.1, as used in Apache Tomcat, JBoss Web, and other products, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop and CPU consumption) via a crafted Content-Type header that bypasses a loop's intended exit conditions.

Solution

Run 'yum update tomcat7' to update your system.
