Several security issues were fixed in Apache Tomcat.
It was discovered that the Apache Tomcat HTTP NIO connector incorrectly handled header data. A remote attacker could cause a denial of service by sending requests with a large amount of header data. (CVE-2012-2733) It was discovered that Apache Tomcat incorrectly handled DIGEST
authentication. A remote attacker could possibly use these flaws to perform a replay attack and bypass authentication. (CVE-2012-5885, CVE-2012-5886, CVE-2012-5887)
Malicious people can bypass certain security restrictions and cause a DoS
The problem can be corrected by applying updated packages.
