Updated tomcat packages fix security vulnerability

Publication date: 31 May 2023
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 8
CVE: CVE-2023-28709


The fix for CVE-2023-24998 was incomplete for Apache Tomcat 11.0.0-M2 to
11.0.0-M4, 10.1.5 to 10.1.7, 9.0.71 to 9.0.73 and 8.5.85 to 8.5.87. If
non-default HTTP connector settings were used such that the
maxParameterCount could be reached using query string parameters and a
request was submitted that supplied exactly maxParameterCount parameters
in the query string, the limit for uploaded request parts could be
bypassed with the potential for a denial of service to occur.
