    Package        : tomcat8
    
    The update for tomcat8 issued as DSA-3788-1 caused that the server could
    return HTTP 400 errors under certain circumstances. Updated packages are
    now available to correct this issue. For reference, the original
    advisory text follows.
    
    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 8.0.14-1+deb8u8.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your tomcat8 packages.
