How to fix?
org.apache.tomcat.embed:tomcat-embed-core to version 7.0.14 or higher.
org.apache.tomcat.embed:tomcat-embed-core is a Core Tomcat implementation.
Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Access Restriction Bypass. Apache Tomcat 7.0.12 and 7.0.13 processes the first request to a servlet without following security constraints that have been configured through annotations, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions via HTTP requests. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2011-1088, CVE-2011-1183, and CVE-2011-1419.
