Description

According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache Tomcat 7.x listening on the remote host is prior to 7.0.11, It is, therefore affected by a security bypass vulnerability.

When a web application is started, 'ServletSecurity' annotations might be ignored which could lead to some areas of the applications not being protected as expected.

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