Synopsis :

The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.

Description :

java/org/apache/catalina/core/AsyncContextImpl.java in Apache Tomcat
7.x before 7.0.40 does not properly handle the throwing of a
RuntimeException in an AsyncListener in an application, which allows
context-dependent attackers to obtain sensitive request information
intended for other applications in opportunistic circumstances via an
application that records the requests that it processes.
