How to fix?

Upgrade org.apache.tomcat:coyote to version 6.0.42 or higher.


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

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to HTTP Request Smuggling. It does not properly handle attempts to continue reading data after an error has occurred, which allows remote attackers to conduct HTTP request smuggling attacks or cause a denial of service (resource consumption) by streaming data with malformed chunked transfer coding.
