Description

ePO runs on Apache Tomcat and as per CVEs listed above, the tomcat update
consumed by ePO is possibly vulnerable to remote code execution.

This ePO update resolves the following issues:
 
CVE-2017-12615
When running tomcat with HTTP PUTs enabled (e.g. via setting the readonly
initialization parameter of the Default servlet to false) it was possible to
upload a JSP file to the server via a specially crafted request. This JSP could
then be requested and any code it contained would be executed by the server.
