Package        : libapache-mod-jk
Version        : 1.2.46-0+deb8u1
CVE ID         : CVE-2018-11759


A vulnerability has been discovered in libapache-mod-jk, the Apache 2
connector for the Tomcat Java servlet engine.

The libapache-mod-jk connector is susceptible to information disclosure
and privilege escalation because of a mishandling of URL normalization.

The nature of the fix required that libapache-mod-jk in Debian 8
"Jessie" be updated to the latest upstream release.  For reference, the
upstream changes associated with each release version are documented
here:

http://tomcat.apache.org/connectors-doc/miscellaneous/changelog.html

For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
1.2.46-0+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libapache-mod-jk packages.
