                     CVE-2014-0050
    
    Multiple security issues were found in the Tomcat servlet and JSP engine:
    
    CVE-2013-2067
    
        FORM authentication associates the most recent request requiring 
        authentication with the current session. By repeatedly sending a request 
        for an authenticated resource while the victim is completing the login 
        form, an attacker could inject a request that would be executed using the 
        victim's credentials.
    
    CVE-2013-2071
    
        A runtime exception in AsyncListener.onComplete() prevents the request from 
        being recycled. This may expose elements of a previous request to a current 
        request.
    
    CVE-2013-4286
    
        Reject requests with multiple content-length headers or with a content-length 
        header when chunked encoding is being used.
    
    CVE-2013-4322
    
        When processing a request submitted using the chunked transfer encoding, 
        Tomcat ignored but did not limit any extensions that were included. This allows 
        a client to perform a limited denial of service. by streaming an unlimited amount 
        of data to the server.
    
    CVE-2014-0050
    
        Multipart requests with a malformed Content-Type header could trigger an 
        infinite loop causing a denial of service.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 7.0.28-4+deb7u1.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 7.0.52-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 7.0.52-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your tomcat7 packages.
