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 Moderate 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 discovered that the ChunkedInputFilter in Tomcat did not fail
subsequent attempts to read input after malformed chunked encoding was
detected. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to make Tomcat
process part of the request body as new request, or cause a denial of
service. (CVE-2014-0227)

All Tomcat 7 users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue. After installing this
update, the tomcat service will be restarted automatically.
