Apache Tomcat 8.5.7 < 8.5.11 nextRequest Information Disclosure
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 99361
SynopsisThe remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of Apache Tomcat installed on the remote host is 8.5.7 or later but prior to 8.5.11. It is, therefore, affected by an information disclosure vulnerability in the nextRequest() function in Http11InputBuffer.java due to improper limits of a ByteBuffer being set. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to disclose ByteBuffer data associated with a different request.
Note that Nessus has not attempted to exploit this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to Apache Tomcat version 8.5.11 or later.
Note that the vulnerability was also fixed in version 8.5.10; however, this version was never publicly released.
