[SECURITY] [DLA 1166-1] tomcat7 security update

Package        : tomcat7
Version        : 7.0.28-4+deb7u16
CVE ID         : CVE-2017-12617

A remote code execution vulnerability has been discovered in tomcat7.

When HTTP PUT was enabled (e.g., via setting the readonly initialization
parameter of the Default servlet to false) it was possible to upload a JSP
file to the server via a specially crafted request. This JSP could then be
requested and any code it contained would be executed by the server.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your tomcat7 packages.
