Description

According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache Tomcat 6.0.x listening on the remote host is prior to 6.0.30. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

  • An error in the access restriction on a

"According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache
Tomcat 6.0.x listening on the remote host is prior to 6.0.30. It is,
therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

  - An error in the access restriction on a 'ServletContext'
    attribute that holds the location of the work directory
    in Tomcat's SecurityManager. A malicious web application
    can modify the location of the working directory which
    then allows improper read and write access to arbitrary
    files and directories in the context of Tomcat.
    (CVE-2010-3718)

  - An input validation error exists in the Manager
    application in that it fails to filter the 'sort' and
    'orderBy' input parameters. (CVE-2010-4172)

  - The default configuration does not include the HTTPOnly
    flag in a Set-Cookie header, which makes it easier for
    remote attackers to hijack a session via script access
    to a cookie. (CVE-2010-4312)

  - An input validation error exists in the HTML manager
    application in that it fails to filter various input
    data before returning it to the browser. (CVE-2011-0013)

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