USN-3204-1: Tomcat vulnerability

20 February 2017

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




It was discovered that Tomcat incorrectly handled certain HTTP requests. A
remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause Tomcat to consume
resources, resulting in a denial of service.

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 14.04
Ubuntu 12.04

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