Description

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.

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.
