New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionTwo vulnerabilities were discovered in tomcat7, a servlet and JSP engine.
- CVE-2017-5647 Pipelined requests were processed incorrectly, which could result in some responses appearing to be sent for the wrong request.
- CVE-2017-5648 Some application listeners calls were issued against the wrong objects, allowing untrusted applications running under a SecurityManager to bypass that protection mechanism and access or modify information associated with other web applications.
SolutionUpgrade the tomcat7 packages.
For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 7.0.56-3+deb8u10.
