The payload length in a WebSocket frame was not correctly validated. Invalid payload lengths could trigger an infinite loop. Multiple requests with invalid payload lengths could lead to a denial of service.

For Debian 8 jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 8.0.14-1+deb8u19.

We recommend that you upgrade your tomcat8 packages.
