SynopsisThe remote host is vulnerable to a flaw that allows attackers to retrieve sensitive files or data.
DescriptionThe remote host is running the Apache Tomcat web server with mod_jk
. mod_jk is reported vulnerable to an information disclosure flaw due to the way that it processes 'Content-Length' headers.
