Apache Tomcat 7.0.x < 7.0.53 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 74246

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 7.0.53. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An error exists related to chunk size and chunked requests that allow denial of service attacks.
(CVE-2014-0075)

- 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.

Solution

Upgrade to Apache Tomcat version 7.0.53 or later.
