How to fix?

Upgrade org.apache.tomcat:catalina to version 6.0.20 or higher.


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

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Information Exposure. When using a RequestDispatcher obtained from the Request, the target path was normalised before the query string was removed. A request that included a specially crafted request parameter could be used to access content that would otherwise be protected by a security constraint or by locating it in under the WEB-INF directory. This was fixed in revisions 782763 and783292.
