Description

According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache Tomcat 5.x listening on the remote host is prior to 5.5.1. It is, therefore, affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.

Specifically, it may allow requests from a non-permitted IP address to gain access to a context that is protected with a valve that extends RequestFilterValve.

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
