The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A denial of service flaw was found in the way certain strings were
converted to Double objects. A remote attacker could use this flaw to
cause Tomcat to hang via a specially crafted HTTP request.
A flaw was found in the Tomcat NIO (Non-Blocking I/O) connector. A
remote attacker could use this flaw to cause a denial of service
(out-of-memory condition) via a specially crafted request containing a
large NIO buffer size request value. (CVE-2011-0534)
This update also fixes the following bug :
- A bug in the 'tomcat6' init script prevented additional
Tomcat instances from starting. As well, running
'service tomcat6 start' caused configuration options
applied from '/etc/sysconfig/tomcat6' to be overwritten
with those from '/etc/tomcat6/tomcat6.conf'. With this
update, multiple instances of Tomcat run as expected.
Tomcat must be restarted for this update to take effect.
