SynopsisThe remote Apache Tomcat server is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache Tomcat 8.0.x listening on the remote host is a version prior to 8.0.5.
It is, therefore, affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.
An error exists that allows undesired XML parsers to be injected into the application by a malicious web application, the bypassing security controls, and the processing of external XML entities.
Note that Nessus Network Monitor has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpdate to Apache Tomcat version 7.0.54 or 8.0.8 or later.\n\nNote that while version 8.0.6 fixes these issues, that version as well as 8.0.7 were not officially released, and the vendor recommends upgrading to 8.0.8 or later.
