CVE-2016-8735 log

Severity High
Remote Yes
Type Arbitrary code execution
The JmxRemoteLifecycleListener was not updated to take account of Oracle's fix for CVE-2016-3427. Therefore, Tomcat installations using this listener remained vulnerable to a similar remote code execution vulnerability.

Date Advisory Group Package Severity Type
23 Nov 2016 ASA-201611-22 AVG-84 tomcat6 High multiple issues
This issue has been rated as high rather than critical due to the small number of installations using this listener and that it would be highly unusual for the JMX ports to be accessible to an attacker even when the listener is used.
