Description

Certain versions of Apache Tomcat contain inefficient code to handle directory listing requests. As a result, a remote attacker can cause the daemon to consume large amounts of CPU power and temporarily deny access for other users.

Solution(s)

  • tomcat-5x-upgrade-latest

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.
