Apache Tomcat <= 6.0.13 / 5.5.24 Multiple Vulnerabilities
Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 4167
SynopsisThe remote host is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.
DescriptionThe remote host is running the Apache Tomcat server. This version of Tomcat is vulnerable to two distinct classes of flaws. First, the application is vulnerable to a Cross-Site Scripting flaw in the 'aliases' parameter of the '/host-manager/html/add' script. Second, the application is vulnerable to a number of flaws that would reveal sensitive information. An attacker exploiting these flaws would be able to either execute code within client browsers or gain information that would be useful for further attacks against Tomcat.
SolutionUpgrade to version 5.5.25, 6.0.14 or higher.
