Apache Tomcat 6.0.x < 6.0.45 / 7.0.x < 7.0.68 / 8.0.x < 8.0.32 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Critical Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 9315

Synopsis

The remote web server is missing an Apache Tomcat patch update.

Description

Apache Tomcat 6.0.x before 6.0.45, 7.0.x before 7.0.68, or 8.0.x before 8.0.32 is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists that may allow a specially crafted web application to load the 'StatusManagerServlet' servlet. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to gain unauthorized access to "a list of all deployed applications and a list of the HTTP request lines for all requests currently being processed." (CVE-2016-0706)
- A flaw exists in the StandardManager, PersistentManager, and cluster implementation that is triggered during the handling of persistent sessions. This may allow a remote attacker to bypass the security manager and use a specially crafted object in a session to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-0714)

Solution

Update to Apache Tomcat version 8.0.32 or later. If version 8.0.x cannot be obtained, versions 7.0.68 and 6.0.45 are also patched for these vulnerabilities.
