Fixed in Apache Tomcat 9.0.0.M13

Description

_Note: The issues below were fixed in Apache Tomcat 9.0.0.M12 but the release vote for the 9.0.0.M12 release candidate did not pass. Therefore, although users must download 9.0.0.M13 to obtain a version that includes fixes for these issues, version 9.0.0.M12 is not included in the list of affected versions._ **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 [1767644](<https://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=rev&rev=1767644>). This issue was reported to the Apache Tomcat Security Team on 19 October 2016 and made public on 22 November 2016. Affects: 9.0.0.M1 to 9.0.0.M11 **Important: Denial of Service** [CVE-2016-6817](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2016-6817>) The HTTP/2 header parser entered an infinite loop if a header was received that was larger than the available buffer. This made a denial of service attack possible. This was fixed in revision [1765794](<https://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=rev&rev=1765794>). This issue was reported as [60232](<https://bz.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=60232>) on 10 October 2016 and the security implications identified by the Apache Tomcat Security Team on the same day. It was made public on 22 November 2016. Affects: 9.0.0.M1 to 9.0.0.M11 **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 [1767641](<https://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=rev&rev=1767641>). This issue was reported to the Apache Tomcat Security Team on 11 October 2016 and made public on 22 November 2016. Affects: 9.0.0.M1 to 9.0.0.M11
