Fedora 16 : tomcat6-6.0.32-17.fc16 (2011-13426)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 56537


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Fix for CVE-2011-3190 This release is the first using a systemd unit file. SystemV files are packaged separately. During this transition users may experience this error: 'error reading information on service tomcat6: No such file or directory' The error occurs because there is no tomcat service to delete. It has been tested, is harmless, and can be ignored.

Resolves: regression in /usr/sbin/tomcat6 (Additionally Created Instances of Tomcat are broken) Bug fix 669969 - dbcp configuration CVE-2011-2204 Added missing commons-pool to lib reverted eclipse osgi manifests to the preceding version.

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


Update the affected tomcat6 package.
