Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

The following vulnerabilities were found in Apache Tomcat 6 :

CVE-2014-0227

The Tomcat security team identified that it was possible to conduct HTTP request smuggling attacks or cause a DoS by streaming malformed data.

CVE-2014-0230

[email protected], from the Baidu Security Team, disclosed that it was possible to cause a limited DoS attack by feeding data by aborting an upload.

CVE-2014-7810

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
