Description

According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache Tomcat 6.x listening on the remote host is prior to 6.0.9. It is, therefore, affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.

If the remote Apache Tomcat install is configured to use the SingleSignOn Valve, the JSESSIONIDSSO cookie does not have the 'secure' attribute set if authentication takes place over HTTPS. This allows the JSESSIONIDSSO cookie to be sent to the same server when HTTP content is requested.

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