Updated tomcat packages that fix one security issue are now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Low security
impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which
gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the
References section.

Apache Tomcat is a servlet container for the Java Servlet and JavaServer
Pages (JSP) technologies.

It was found that, in certain circumstances, it was possible for a
malicious web application to replace the XML parsers used by Apache Tomcat
to process XSLTs for the default servlet, JSP documents, tag library
descriptors (TLDs), and tag plug-in configuration files. The injected XML
parser(s) could then bypass the limits imposed on XML external entities
and/or gain access to the XML files processed for other web applications
deployed on the same Apache Tomcat instance. (CVE-2014-0119)

All Tomcat users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue. Tomcat must be restarted
for this update to take effect.
