    Package        : tomcat7
    CVE ID         : CVE-2016-3092
    
    The TERASOLUNA Framework Development Team discovered a denial of service
    vulnerability in Apache Commons FileUpload, a package to make it
    easy to add robust, high-performance, file upload capability to servlets
    and web applications. A remote attacker can take advantage of this flaw
    by sending file upload requests that cause the HTTP server using the
    Apache Commons Fileupload library to become unresponsive, preventing the
    server from servicing other requests.
    
    Apache Tomcat uses a package renamed copy of Apache Commons FileUpload
    to implement the file upload requirements of the Servlet specification
    and is therefore also vulnerable to the denial of service vulnerability.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 7.0.56-3+deb8u3.
    
    For the testing distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed
    in version 7.0.70-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 7.0.70-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your tomcat7 packages.
