It was discovered that jetty, a Java servlet engine and webserver, is vulnerable to a timing attack and an information leak. An attacker might reveal cryptographic credentials such as passwords to a local user, or disclose webapps installation path.

For Debian 8 jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 6.1.26-4+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your jetty packages.
