Debian DLA-1475-1 : tomcat-native security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 112065


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


When using an OCSP responder Tomcat Native did not correctly handle
invalid responses. This allowed for revoked client certificates to be
incorrectly identified. It was therefore possible for users to
authenticate with revoked certificates when using mutual TLS. Users
not using OCSP checks are not affected by this vulnerability.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your tomcat-native 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.


Upgrade the affected libtcnative-1 package.
