    Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Tomcat
    servlet and JSP engine. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
    identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2008-0128
    
        Olaf Kock discovered that HTTPS encryption was insufficiently
        enforced for single-sign-on cookies, which could result in
        information disclosure.
    
    CVE-2007-2450
    
        It was discovered that the Manager and Host Manager web applications
        performed insufficient input sanitising, which could lead to cross-
        site scripting.
    
    This update also adapts the tomcat5.5-webapps package to the tightened
    JULI permissions introduced in the previous tomcat5.5 DSA. However, it
    should be noted, that the tomcat5.5-webapps is for demonstration and
    documentation purposes only and should not be used for production
    systems.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 5.5.20-2etch2.
    
    The old stable distribution (sarge) doesn't contain tomcat5.5.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your tomcat5.5 packages.
    
    Upgrade instructions

      its next update.
