    Package        : tomcat8

    CVE ID         : CVE-2019-12418
    
    
    Tomcat8 is configured with the JMX Remote Lifecycle Listener, a local
    attacker without access to the Tomcat process or configuration files
    is able to manipulate the RMI registry to perform a man-in-the-middle
    attack to capture user names and passwords used to access the JMX
    interface. The attacker can then use these credentials to access the
    JMX interface and gain complete control over the Tomcat instance.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    8.0.14-1+deb8u16.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your tomcat8 packages.
