Description

According to its self-reported version number, the Apache Tomcat instance listening on the remote host is 7.0.x prior to 7.0.47 or 8.0.x prior to 8.0.0-RC3. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerability:

  • An information disclosure vulnerability exists in Tomcat due to improper handling of content-length headers. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to disclose potentially sensitive information.

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