Debian Security Advisory

DLA-746-2 tomcat6 -- LTS security update

Date Reported:
17 Dec 2016
Affected Packages:
Security database references:
In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 848492.
More information:

The last security update introduced a regression due to the use of StringManager in the ResourceLinkFactory class. The code was removed again since it is not strictly required to resolve CVE-2016-6797.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 6.0.45+dfsg-1~deb7u5.

We recommend that you upgrade your tomcat6 packages.
