Debian DLA-1400-2 : tomcat7 regression update
High Nessus Plugin ID 110726
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThe security update of Tomcat 7 announced as DLA-1400-1 introduced a regression for applications that make use of the Equinox OSGi framework. The MANIFEST file of tomcat-jdbc.jar in libtomcat7-java contains an invalid version number which was automatically derived from the Debian package version. This caused an OSGi exception.
For Debian 8 'Jessie', this issue has been fixed in version 7.0.56-3+really7.0.88-2.
We recommend that you upgrade your tomcat7 packages.
NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpgrade the affected packages.
