Severity: Important

Vendor: The Apache Software Foundation

request. The hanging request consumed a request processing thread which
could lead to a denial of service.

Mitigation:
Users of affected versions should apply one of the following mitigations
- Upgrade to Apache Tomcat 8.0.5 or later
(8.0.4 contains the fix but was not released)

Credit:
This issue was reported as a possible bug via the Tomcat users mailing
list and the security implications were identified by theTomcat security
team.
