Package        : libapache-mod-jk
CVE ID         : CVE-2018-11759

Raphael Arrouas and Jean Lejeune discovered an access control bypass
vulnerability in mod_jk, the Apache connector for the Tomcat Java
servlet engine. The vulnerability is addressed by upgrading mod_jk to
the new upstream version 1.2.46, which includes additional changes.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
version 1:1.2.46-0+deb9u1.

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