Subject Tomcat cross-site scripting vulnerability
Date Fri, 04 Jul 2014 13:12:49 GMT
Our latest PCI scan using the Saint scanner shows the following:

404 Error Page Cross Site Scripting Vulnerability
Apache Tomcat is prone to a cross-site scripting vulnerability because 
it fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input.
An attacker may leverage this issue to execute arbitrary script code in 
the browser
of an unsuspecting user in the context of the affected site.

Is there any way to mitigate this vulnerability (I suspect anyone using 
Tomcat is going to see the same thing)?
