Apache Tomcat 8.5.x < 8.5.34 Open Redirect Weakness

medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 700696
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by a open redirect vulnerability.

Description

The 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.

Solution

Upgrade to Apache Tomcat version 8.5.34 or later.
