    Summary:
    
    Several security issues were fixed in Tomcat.
    
    Software Description:
    - tomcat8: Servlet and JSP engine
    
    Details:
    
    It was discovered that Tomcat incorrectly handled the RMI registry when
    configured with the JMX Remote Lifecycle Listener. A local attacker could
    possibly use this issue to obtain credentials and gain complete control
    over the Tomcat instance. (CVE-2019-12418)

    remote attacker could possibly use this issue to perform a session fixation
    attack. (CVE-2019-17563)
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
      libtomcat8-java                 8.0.32-1ubuntu1.11
      tomcat8                         8.0.32-1ubuntu1.11
