Description Arun Babu Neelicattu 2014-04-22 07:10:49 UTC
It was found that a fix for a previous security flaw introduced a regression that could cause a denial of service in Tomcat 7. A remote attacker could use this flaw to consume an excessive amount of CPU on the Tomcat server by sending a specially crafted request to that server.

Comment 3 Arun Babu Neelicattu 2014-06-03 13:24:45 UTC
The flaw was introduced in the tomcat-7.0.42-4.el7 build.
