Updated tomcat6 packages that fix one security issue and one bug are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

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)

This update also fixes the following bug:

tomcat process if an attempt to stop it was unsuccessful, which would
prevent tomcat from restarting properly. The init script was modified to
correct this issue. (BZ#1207048)

All Tomcat 6 users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
correct these issues. Tomcat must be restarted for this update to take
