How to fix?

Upgrade org.apache.tomcat:tomcat-catalina to version 7.0.94, 8.5.40, 9.0.18 or higher.

Overview

org.apache.tomcat:tomcat-catalina is a Tomcat Servlet Engine Core Classes and Standard implementations.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Remote Code Execution due to a bug in the way the underlying Java Runtime Environment (JRE) passes command line arguments to windows systems when the option enableCmdLineArguments is enabled.

The CGI Servlet in Apache Tomcat when enabled, will pass user input to the underlying operating system for command line parsing. However, this process is not consistent and may allow the injection of additional arguments. This misconfiguration could be abused by attackers to execute code on an application's underlying operating system.
