    CVE-2012-3544
    
        The input filter for chunked transfer encodings could trigger high 
        resource consumption through malformed CRLF sequences, resulting in 
        denial of service.
    
    CVE-2013-2067
    
        The FormAuthenticator module was vulnerable to session fixation.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version 6.0.35-1+squeeze3. This update also provides fixes for 
    CVE-2012-2733,CVE-2012-3546,CVE-2012-4431, CVE-2012-4534,CVE-2012-5885,
    CVE-2012-5886 and CVE-2012-5887, which were all fixed for stable already.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 6.0.35-6+deb7u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your tomcat6 packages.
