Apache Tomcat 8.5.x < 8.5.34 Security Bypass
Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 700696
SynopsisThe remote web server is missing an Apache Tomcat patch update.
DescriptionThe version of Apache Tomcat installed on the remote host is version 8.5.x prior to 8.5.34. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability that could allow a remote attacker to bypass security restrictions, caused by a missing host name verification when using TLS with the WebSocket client. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to bypass security constraints to access restricted resources.
SolutionUpdate to Apache Tomcat version 8.5.34 or later.
