Description


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 found that the expression language resolver evaluated expressions
within a privileged code section. A malicious web application could use
this flaw to bypass security manager protections. (CVE-2014-7810)

This update also fixes the following bug:

* Previously, using a New I/O (NIO) connector in the Apache Tomcat 6
servlet resulted in a large memory leak. An upstream patch has been applied
to fix this bug, and the memory leak no longer occurs. (BZ#1301646)

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