How to fix?
org.apache.tomcat:tomcat-coyote to version 10.0.7, 9.0.48, 8.5.68 or higher.
org.apache.tomcat:tomcat-coyote is a Tomcat Connectors and HTTP parser.
Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to HTTP Request Smuggling. Tomcat does not correctly parse the HTTP transfer-encoding request header in some circumstances, leading to the possibility of request smuggling when used with a reverse proxy.
Specifically, Tomcat incorrectly ignores the transfer encoding header if the client declared it would only accept an HTTP/1.0 response; it honours the identify encoding; and it does not ensure that, if present, the chunked encoding was the final encoding.
