Description

Versions of Tomcat prior to 4.0.4 are vulnerable to an exploit that allows a remote attacker to execute scripts via URLs crafted using the /servlet/ mapping. The script is not filtered when an exception is thrown, and thus executed.

Solution(s)

  • tomcat-4x-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.
