Is there more information on this issue? Is it reported upstream as well?
Hi Salvatore, this was related to an upstream JSS PR and the code has been already fixed in the latest releases.

Can we please correct the component that this CVE is reported against? All of the trackers filed against tomcat are closed as notabug or wontfix, but that's not an accurate status of the issue. There isn't a problem within tomcat, but rather the tomcatjss library. If it's actually an issue (there's limited information here...) the tomcatjss maintainer has likely already fixed it and we should be providing accurate information to our customers about it's status. Thanks!
