Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201705-09 (Apache Tomcat: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Tomcat. Please review       the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.

Impact :

A remote attacker may be able to cause a Denial of Service condition,       obtain sensitive information, bypass protection mechanisms and       authentication restrictions.
A local attacker, who is a tomcat’s system user or belongs to       tomcat’s group, could potentially escalate privileges.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
