    Debian Bug     : 864447 802312
    
    Aniket Nandkishor Kulkarni discovered that in tomcat7, a servlet and
    JSP engine, static error pages used the original request's HTTP method
    to serve content, instead of systematically using the GET method. This
    could under certain conditions result in undesirable results,
    including the replacement or removal of the custom error page.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed
    in version 7.0.56-3+deb8u11.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 7.0.72-3.
    
    For the testing distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed
    in version 7.0.72-3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 7.0.72-3.
