Description

Certain versions of Apache Tomcat ship with a host manager servlet that does not properly filter the "aliases" parameter. This could allow cross-site scripting attacks by injecting arbitrary web script or HTML via the "aliases" parameter.

Solution(s)

  • tomcat-5x-upgrade-5_5_25
  • tomcat-6x-upgrade-6_0_14

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
