(CVE-2010-3718) It was discovered that Tomcat did not properly escape certain parameters in the Manager application which could result in browsers becoming vulnerable to cross-site scripting attacks when processing the output. With cross-site scripting vulnerabilities, if a user were tricked into viewing server output during a crafted server request, a remote attacker could exploit this to modify the contents, or steal confidential data (such as passwords), within the same domain. (CVE-2011-0013) It was discovered that Tomcat incorrectly enforced the maxHttpHeaderSize limit in certain configurations. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause Tomcat to consume all available memory, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2011-0534)
