Intrusion Prevention

Apache.Tomcat.Jsecurity.Check.Information.Disclosure

Description

This indicates an attack attempt against an information disclosure vulnerability in Apache Tomcat.
A vulnerability has been reported in Apache Tomcat that may allow an attacker to gain knowledge of sensitive information on a vulnerable system. This is possible because the user input filters fail to properly sanitize the j_password parameter value that is passed to "j_security_check". An attacker may read any file on the vulnerable server by sending a crafted http request.
