741401: CVE-2011-1184 CVE-2011-5062 CVE-2011-5063 CVE-2011-5064 tomcat: Multiple weaknesses in HTTP DIGEST authentication

The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:

The HTTP Digest Access Authentication implementation in Apache Tomcat 5.5.x before 5.5.34, 6.x before 6.0.33, and 7.x before 7.0.12 does not have the expected countermeasures against replay attacks, which makes it easier for remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions by sniffing the network for valid requests, related to lack of checking of nonce (aka server nonce) and nc (aka nonce-count or client nonce count) values.
