How to fix?

Upgrade org.apache.tomcat:tomcat-catalina to version 7.0.91, 8.5.34, 9.0.12 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 Open Redirect. When the default servlet returned a redirect to a directory (e.g. redirecting to '/foo/' when the user requested '/foo') a specially crafted URL could be used to cause the redirect to be generated to any URI of the attackers choice.
