USN-3027-1: Tomcat vulnerability

6 July 2016

Tomcat could be made to hang if it received specially crafted network traffic.




It was discovered that the Tomcat Fileupload library incorrectly handled
certain upload requests. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to
cause a denial of service.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 16.04

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
