Apache Tomcat 8.5.x < 8.5.28 Security Constraint Weakness

Medium Web Application Scanning Plugin ID 112298


Apache Tomcat 8.5.x < 8.5.28 Security Constraint Weakness


The version of Apache Tomcat installed on the remote host is 8.5.x prior to 8.5.28. It is, therefore, affected by security constraints flaws which could expose resources to unauthorized users.

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 8.5.28 or later.
