Apache Tomcat 7.0.x < 7.0.6 Manager Interface XSS

medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5794

Synopsis

The remote web server is affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability.

Description

According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache Tomcat 7.x listening on the remote host is prior to 7.0.6. It is, therefore, affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability in its HTML Manager interface. A remote attacker can exploit this to inject code into a user's browser via a crafted URL.

Note that Nessus Network Monitor has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade to Apache Tomcat 7.0.6 or later.
