Description

Package : tomcat6 Version : 6.0.45+dfsg-1~deb7u5 Debian Bug : 848492

The last security update introduced a regression due to the use of StringManager in the ResourceLinkFactory class. The code was removed again since it is not strictly required to resolve CVE-2016-6797.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version 6.0.45+dfsg-1~deb7u5.

We recommend that you upgrade your tomcat6 packages.
