Debian DLA-924-2 : tomcat7 regression update

High Nessus Plugin ID 99735

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

The security update announced as DLA-924-1 introduced a regression in Tomcat's APR protocol due to the fix for CVE-2017-5647 and prevented a successful sendfile request.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 7.0.28-4+deb7u13.

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.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
