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.

Synopsis

The remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

According to its self-reported version number, the Apache Tomcat service running on the remote host is 6.0.x prior to 6.0.45. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the getResource(), getResourceAsStream(), and getResourcePaths() ServletContext methods due to a failure to properly sanitize user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted path traversal request, to gain access to the listing of directory contents. (CVE-2015-5174)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to a failure to enforce access restrictions when handling directory requests that are missing trailing slashes. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to enumerate valid directories. (CVE-2015-5345)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists that allows a specially crafted web application to load the StatusManagerServlet. An attacker can exploit this to gain unauthorized access to a list of all deployed applications and a list of the HTTP request lines for all requests currently being processed. (CVE-2016-0706)

- A security bypass vulnerability exists due to a flaw in the StandardManager, PersistentManager, and cluster implementations that is triggered when handling persistent sessions. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted object in a session, to bypass the security manager and execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2016-0714)

Note that Nessus has not attempted to exploit these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade to Apache Tomcat version 6.0.45 or later.
