How to fix?

Upgrade org.apache.tomcat:coyote to version 6.0.27 or higher.


org.apache.tomcat:coyote is a maven plugin for Tomcat Connectors and HTTP parser.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Information Exposure. Does not properly handle an invalid Transfer-Encoding header, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application outage) or obtain sensitive information via a crafted header that interferes with "recycling of a buffer."
