    Debian Bug     : 851304
    
    It was discovered that a programming error in the processing of HTTPS
    requests in the Apache Tomcat servlet and JSP engine may result in
    denial of service via an infinite loop.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 7.0.56-3+deb8u8.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your tomcat7 packages.
