Apache Tomcat 7.0.x < 7.0.81 Multiple Vulnerabilities
Medium Web Application Scanning Plugin ID 112310
SynopsisApache Tomcat 7.0.x < 7.0.81 Multiple Vulnerabilities
DescriptionThe version of Apache Tomcat installed on the remote host is 7.0.x prior to 7.0.81. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- An unspecified vulnerability when running on Windows with HTTP PUTs enabled (e.g. via setting the readonly initialization parameter of the Default to false) makes it possible to upload a JSP file to the server via a specially crafted request. This JSP could then be requested and any code it
contained would be executed by the server. (CVE-2017-12615, CVE-2017-12617)
- When using a VirtualDirContext it was possible to bypass security constraints and/or view the source code of JSPs for resources served by the VirtualDirContext using a specially crafted request. (CVE-2017-12616)
Note that the scanner has not attempted to exploit this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to Apache Tomcat version 7.0.81 or later.
