to send and receive messages within the cluster, leading to information
disclosure, message spoofing, or further possible attacks. (CVE-2016-2141)

More information about this vulnerability is available at:

* A directory traversal flaw was found in Tomcat's and JBoss Web's
RequestUtil.java. A remote, authenticated user could use this flaw to
bypass intended SecurityManager restrictions and list a parent directory
via a '/..' in a pathname used by a web application in a getResource,
getResourceAsStream, or getResourcePaths call, as demonstrated by the
$CATALINA_BASE/webapps directory. (CVE-2015-5174)
