3. Description:

Apache Tomcat is a servlet container for the Java Servlet and JavaServer
Pages (JSP) technologies.

It was found that, in certain circumstances, it was possible for a
malicious web application to replace the XML parsers used by Apache Tomcat
to process XSLTs for the default servlet, JSP documents, tag library
descriptors (TLDs), and tag plug-in configuration files. The injected XML
parser(s) could then bypass the limits imposed on XML external entities
and/or gain access to the XML files processed for other web applications
deployed on the same Apache Tomcat instance. (CVE-2014-0119)

All Tomcat users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue. Tomcat must be restarted
for this update to take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the
Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/articles/11258
