SynopsisThe remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache Tomcat 8.0.x listening on the remote host is prior to 8.0.4. 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 content length header handling and Apache JServ Protocol (AJP) requests that allow denial of service attacks. (CVE-2014-0095)
- An error exists related to XSLT handling and security managers that allow a 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 could allow 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 8.0.5 or later.
Note that while version 8.0.4 fixes these issues, that version was not officially released, and the vendor recommends upgrading to 8.0.5 or later.
