high Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 9904
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 web server is running Apache TomEE.

Description

The remote web server is running Apache TomEE 7.x prior to 7.0.1 and is affected by a flaw in 'boundaries' within content-type headers when handling file upload requests. This may allow a remote attacker to cause a process linked against the library to become unresponsive.

Solution

Upgrade Apache TomEE to version 7.0.1 or higher.
