    Multiple security vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Tomcat
    servlet and JSP engine, which may result in possible timing attacks to
    determine valid user names, bypass of the SecurityManager, disclosure of
    system properties, unrestricted access to global resources, arbitrary
    file overwrites, and potentially escalation of privileges.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 7.0.56-3+deb8u5.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your tomcat7 packages.
