Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

This update includes a rebase from 8.0.49 up to 8.0.50 which resolves two CVEs along with various other bugs/features :

- rhbz#1548290	CVE-2018-1304 tomcat: Incorrect handling of empty string URL in security constraints can lead to unitended exposure of resources

- rhbz#1548284 CVE-2018-1305 tomcat: Late application of security constraints can lead to resource exposure for unauthorised users

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora update system website.
Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected 1:tomcat package.
