Description

It was discovered that the Tomcat 8 SSI printenv command echoed user provided data without escaping it. An attacker could possibly use this issue to perform an XSS attack. (CVE-2019-0221)

It was discovered that Tomcat 8 did not address HTTP/2 connection window exhaustion on write while addressing CVE-2019-0199. An attacker could possibly use this issue to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2019-10072).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
