Several vulnerabilities have been found in Tomcat, a servlet and JSP 

CVE-2011-1184 CVE-2011-5062 CVE-2011-5063 CVE-2011-5064

   The HTTP Digest Access Authentication implementation performed
   insufficient countermeasures against replay attacks.


   In rare setups passwords were written into a logfile.

   Missing input sanisiting in the HTTP APR or HTTP NIO connectors
   could lead to denial of service.


   AJP requests could be spoofed in some setups.


   Incorrect request caching could lead to information disclosure.

CVE-2011-4858 CVE-2012-0022

   This update adds countermeasures against a collision denial of 
   service vulnerability in the Java hashtable implementation and
   addresses denial of service potentials when processing large
   amounts of requests.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 6.0.35-1+squeeze2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 6.0.35-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your tomcat6 packages.
