    Multiple security vulnerabilities were discovered in the Tomcat
    servlet and JSP engine, as well as in its Debian-specific maintainer
    scripts. Those flaws allowed for privilege escalation, information
    disclosure, and remote code execution.
    
    As part of this update, several regressions stemming from incomplete
    fixes for previous vulnerabilities were also fixed.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 7.0.56-3+deb8u6.
    
    For the testing (stretch) and unstable (sid) distributions, these
    problems have been fixed in version 7.0.72-3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your tomcat7 packages.
