New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 2.5
SynopsisThe remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache Tomcat 8.0.x listening on the remote host is a version prior to 8.0.5.
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, the bypassing security controls, and 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 8.0.8 or later.
Note that while version 8.0.6 fixes these issues, that version as well as 8.0.7 were not officially released, and the vendor recommends upgrading to 8.0.8 or later.
