    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-8111
    Debian Bug     : 783233
    
    An information disclosure flaw due to incorrect JkMount/JkUnmount
    directives processing was found in the Apache 2 module mod_jk to forward
    requests from the Apache web server to Tomcat. A JkUnmount rule for a
    subtree of a previous JkMount rule could be ignored. This could allow a
    remote attacker to potentially access a private artifact in a tree that
    would otherwise not be accessible to them.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed
    in version 1:1.2.37-1+deb7u1.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:1.2.37-4+deb8u1.
    
    For the testing distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed
    in version 1:1.2.40+svn150520-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:1.2.40+svn150520-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libapache-mod-jk packages.
