Apache TomCat mod_jk < 1.2.27 Cross-user Information Disclosure

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a flaw that allows attackers to retrieve sensitive files or data.

Description

The remote host is running the Apache Tomcat web server with mod_jk

. mod_jk is reported vulnerable to an information disclosure flaw due to the way that it processes 'Content-Length' headers. Allegedly, an attacker supplying a NULL content-length can view the HTTP responses of other requests. An attacker exploiting this flaw would be able to possibly gain access to confidential data.

Solution

Upgrade to version 1.2.27 or higher.
