Fixed in Apache Tomcat 7.0.73

Description

**Important: Remote Code Execution** [CVE-2016-8735](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2016-8735>) The `JmxRemoteLifecycleListener` was not updated to take account of Oracle's fix for [CVE-2016-3427](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2016-3427>). Therefore, Tomcat installations using this listener remained vulnerable to a similar remote code execution vulnerability. This issue has been rated as important rather than critical due to the small number of installations using this listener and that it would be highly unusual for the JMX ports to be accessible to an attacker even when the listener is used. This was fixed in revision [1767676](<https://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=rev&rev=1767676>). This issue was reported to the Apache Tomcat Security Team on 19 October 2016 and made public on 22 November 2016. Affects: 7.0.0 to 7.0.72 **Important: Information Disclosure** [CVE-2016-6816](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2016-6816>) The code that parsed the HTTP request line permitted invalid characters. This could be exploited, in conjunction with a proxy that also permitted the invalid characters but with a different interpretation, to inject data into the HTTP response. By manipulating the HTTP response the attacker could poison a web-cache, perform an XSS attack and/or obtain sensitive information from requests other then their own. This was fixed in revision [1767675](<https://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=rev&rev=1767675>). This issue was reported to the Apache Tomcat Security Team on 11 October 2016 and made public on 22 November 2016. Affects: 7.0.0 to 7.0.72
