> DESCRIPTION:
> A vulnerability has been reported in Apache Tomcat JK Web Server
> Connector, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a
> vulnerable system.
> 
> The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error within the
> "map_uri_to_worker()" function in the mod_jk.so library. This can be
> exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via an overly long
> (more than 4,095 bytes) URL request.
> 
> Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.
> 
> The vulnerability reportedly only affects versions 1.2.19 and 1.2.20.
> Tomcat versions 5.5.20 and 4.1.34 are reportedly also affected as they
> contain the vulnerable connector version in their source packages.
> 
> SOLUTION:
> Update to version 1.2.21.
