Overview

org.apache.tomcat.embed:tomcat-embed-core is a Core Tomcat implementation.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Information Exposure. The previous fix for CVE-2007-3385 was incomplete. It did not consider the use of quotes or %5C within a cookie value which might cause sensitive information such as session IDs to be leaked to remote attackers and enable session hijacking attacks.
