[SECURITY] [DLA 1166-2] tomcat7 regression update

Package        : tomcat7
Version        : 7.0.28-4+deb7u17
Debian Bug     : 881162

The update for tomcat7 issued as DLA-1166-1 caused a regressions whereby every
request, including for the root document (/), returned HTTP status 404. Updated
packages are now available to address this problem. For reference, the original
advisory text follows.

    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.
