SynopsisThe remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache Tomcat 7.0.x listening on the remote host is prior to 7.0.54. It is, therefore, affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.
An error exists that allows undesired XML parsers to be injected into the application by a malicious web application, allows the bypassing of security controls, and allows the processing of external XML entities.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to Apache Tomcat version 7.0.54 or later.
