Apache Tomcat 8.5.x < 8.5.68 Request Smuggling

medium Web Application Scanning Plugin ID 112898

Synopsis

Apache Tomcat 8.5.x < 8.5.68 Request Smuggling

Description

The version of Apache Tomcat installed on the remote host is 10.0.0-M1 to 10.0.6, 9.0.0.M1 to 9.0.47 or 8.5.0 to 8.5.67. It is, therefore, affected by a request smuggling because Apache Tomcat did not correctly parse the HTTP transfer-encoding request header in some circumstances when used with a reverse proxy.

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

Solution

Upgrade to Apache Tomcat version 8.5.68 or later.
