Apache Tomcat 8.0.x < 8.0.9 Multiple DoS
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 81580
SynopsisThe remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by multiple denial of service vulnerabilities.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number, the Apache Tomcat server running on the remote host is 8.0.x prior to version 8.0.9. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- A flaw in 'ChunkedInputFilter.java' due to improper handling of attempts to continue reading data after an error has occurred. A remote attacker, using streaming data with malformed chunked transfer coding, can exploit this to conduct HTTP request smuggling or cause a denial of service. (CVE-2014-0227)
- An error exists due to a failure to limit the size of discarded requests. A remote attacker can exploit this to exhaust available memory resources, resulting in a denial of service condition. (CVE-2014-0230)
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 8.0.9 or later.
