============================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 15.04
- Ubuntu 14.10
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in Tomcat.

Software Description:
- tomcat7: Servlet and JSP engine

Details:

It was discovered that the Tomcat XML parser incorrectly handled XML
External Entities (XXE). A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to
read arbitrary files. This issue only affected Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.
(CVE-2014-0119)

It was discovered that Tomcat incorrectly handled data with malformed
chunked transfer coding. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to
conduct HTTP request smuggling attacks, or cause Tomcat to consume
resources, resulting in a denial of service. This issue only affected
Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. (CVE-2014-0227)

It was discovered that Tomcat incorrectly handled HTTP responses occurring
before the entire request body was finished being read. A remote attacker
could possibly use this issue to cause memory consumption, resulting in a
denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.
(CVE-2014-0230)

It was discovered that the Tomcat Expression Language (EL) implementation
incorrectly handled accessible interfaces implemented by inaccessible
classes. An attacker could possibly use this issue to bypass a
SecurityManager protection mechanism. (CVE-2014-7810)

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 15.04:
libtomcat7-java 7.0.56-2ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 14.10:
libtomcat7-java 7.0.55-1ubuntu0.2
