Apache Tomcat 7.0.x < 7.0.2 Denial of Service and Information Disclosure

medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5791


The remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by denial of service and information disclosure vulnerability.


According to its self-reported version number, the Apache Tomcat instance listening on the remote host is prior to 7.0.2. It is, therefore, affected by a denial of service vulnerability which could also lead to information disclosure. A remote attacker could trigger flaws in the handling of the Transfer-Encoding header to cause a denial of service or potentially leak information.
\Note that Nessus Network Monitor has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to Apache Tomcat 7.0.2 or later.
