Apache Tomcat 6.0.x < 6.0.43 Chunked Request Smuggling Vulnerability

Medium

Synopsis

The remote web server is missing an Apache Tomcat patch update.

Description

Apache Tomcat 6.x before 6.0.43 does not properly handle attempts to continue reading data after an error has occurred, which allows remote attackers to conduct HTTP request smuggling attacks or cause a denial of service by streaming data with malformed chunked transfer coding. (CVE-2014-0227)

Solution

Update to Apache Tomcat version 6.0.43 or later.
