Upgrade org.apache.tomcat:catalina to version 6.0.38 or higher.

Overview

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

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Improper Input Validation. The org/apache/catalina/connector/CoyoteAdapter.java in Apache Tomcat 6.0.33 through 6.0.37 does not consider the disableURLRewriting setting when handling a session ID in a URL, which allows remote attackers to conduct session fixation attacks via a crafted URL.
