Description

SendMailServlet, which is one of the example web application that comes with Apache Tomcat (examples/jsp/mail/sendmail.jsp), is vulnerable to a cross-site scripting vulnerability because it does not escape user provided data before including it in the output.

Solution(s)

  • tomcat-4x-upgrade-4_1_37

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.
