org.apache.tomcat:tomcat-catalina to version 9.0.63 or higher.
org.apache.tomcat:tomcat-catalina is a Tomcat Servlet Engine Core Classes and Standard implementations.
Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Insufficient Technical Documentation. The documentation for the
EncryptInterceptor incorrectly stated it enabled Tomcat clustering to run over an untrusted network. This was not correct. While the
EncryptInterceptor does provide confidentiality and integrity protection, it does not protect against all risks associated with running over any untrusted network, particularly DoS risks.
Note: The documentation was updated in version 9.0.63.
