Apache Tomcat 7.0.x < 7.0.53 Multiple Vulnerabilities
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 74246
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 7.0.53. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- An error exists related to chunk size and chunked requests that allow denial of service attacks.
- An error exists related to XSLT handling and security managers that allows security bypass related to external XML entities. (CVE-2014-0096)
- An error exists related to content length header handling and using the application behind a reverse proxy that allows a security bypass. (CVE-2014-0099)
Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to Apache Tomcat version 7.0.53 or later.
