Apache Tomcat 9.0.0.M1 < 9.0.10 Multiple Vulnerabilities

critical Web Application Scanning Plugin ID 112290
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.


Apache Tomcat 9.0.0.M1 < 9.0.10 Multiple Vulnerabilities


The version of Apache Tomcat installed on the remote host is 9.0.x prior to 9.0.10. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists in WebSocket client because host name verification is missing

- A flaw exists in NIO/NIO2 connectors due to a mishandling of close that can lead to reuse of user sessions

- A flaw exists in CORS filter due to insecure defaults

Note that the scanner has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to Apache Tomcat version 9.0.10 or later.
