Apache Tomcat is a servlet container for the Java Servlet and
JavaServer Pages (JSP) technologies.
Security Fix(es) :
* A vulnerability was discovered in the error page mechanism in
Tomcat's DefaultServlet implementation. A crafted HTTP request could
cause undesired side effects, possibly including the removal or
replacement of the custom error page. (CVE-2017-5664)
* A vulnerability was discovered in Tomcat. When running an untrusted
application under a SecurityManager it was possible, under some
circumstances, for that application to retain references to the
request or response objects and thereby access and/or modify
information associated with another web application. (CVE-2017-5648)
