Description

By sending a malformed chunked transfer encoding request, it is possible to desynchronize the communications link between mod_jk and Tomcat. As a result, the server will return responses to one user that were meant for another. This problem can cause sensitive information to be disclosed, although this side-effect is not believed to be intentionally exploitable.

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.
