Security Fix(es) :

with a proxy that also permitted the invalid characters but with a
different interpretation, to inject data into the HTTP response. By
manipulating the HTTP response the attacker could poison a web-cache,
perform an XSS attack and/or obtain sensitive information from
requests other then their own. (CVE-2016-6816)
* An EAP feature to download server log files allows logs to be
available via GET requests making them vulnerable to cross-origin
attacks. An attacker could trigger the user's browser to request the
log files consuming enough resources that normal server functioning
could be impaired. (CVE-2016-8627)
* It was discovered that when configuring RBAC and marking information
as sensitive, users with a Monitor role are able to view the sensitive
