Apache Tomcat 9.0.0.M1 < 9.0.37 Denial of Service

Medium Web Application Scanning Plugin ID 112549


Apache Tomcat 9.0.0.M1 < 9.0.37 Denial of Service


The version of Apache Tomcat installed on the remote host is 10.0.0-M1 to 10.0.0-M6, 9.0.0.M1 to 9.0.36, 8.5.0 to 8.5.56 or 7.0.0 to 7.0.104. It is, therefore, affected by two denial of service vulnerabilities via WebSocket frame and HTTP/2 requests.

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


Upgrade to Apache Tomcat version 9.0.37 or later.
