Package        : tomcat8
Version        : 8.5.54-0+deb9u8
CVE ID         : CVE-2021-41079

Apache Tomcat did not properly validate incoming TLS packets. When Tomcat
was configured to use NIO+OpenSSL or NIO2+OpenSSL for TLS, a specially

denial of service.

For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your tomcat8 packages.
