Updated tomcat/apache-commons-fileupload packages fix security vulnerabilityPublication date: 26 Jul 2016
Affected Mageia releases : 5
The TERASOLUNA Framework Development Team discovered a denial of service vulnerability in Apache Commons FileUpload. A remote attacker can take advantage of this flaw by sending file upload requests that cause the HTTP server using the Apache Commons Fileupload library to become unresponsive, preventing the server from servicing other requests. Tomcat contains a bundled copy of this library, so it has also been patched to fix this issue.
