According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache Tomcat listening on the remote host is 5.0.x equal to or prior to 5.0.30 or 5.5.x prior to 5.5.23. It is, therefore, affected by an HTTP request smuggling vulnerability.

Requests containing multiple ‘content-length’ headers are not rejected as invalid. This error can allow web-cache poisoning, cross-site scripting attacks and information disclosure.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application’s self-reported version number.
