Severity
CVSSv3 Score
7.5
Vulnerability description

Apache Tomcat is prone to a denial of service (DoS) vulnerability.

Risk description

Tomcats internal fork of a Commons FileUpload included an unreleased, in progress refactoring that exposed a potential denial of service on Windows if a web application opened a stream for an uploaded file but failed to close the stream. The file would never be deleted from disk creating the possibility of an eventual denial of service due to the disk being full.
