Description The ResourceLinkFactory did not limit web application access to global JNDI resources to those resources explicitly linked to the web application. Therefore, it was possible for a web application to access any global JNDI resource whether an explicit ResourceLink had been configured or not. Mitigation Users of affected versions should apply one of the following mitigations - Upgrade to Apache Tomcat 9.0.0.M10 or later - Upgrade to Apache Tomcat 8.5.5 or later - Upgrade to Apache Tomcat 8.0.37 or later - Upgrade to Apache Tomcat 7.0.72 or later (Apache Tomcat 7.0.71 has the fix but was not released) - Upgrade to Apache Tomcat 6.0.47 or later (Apache Tomcat 6.0.46 has the fix but was not released) Credit: This issue was discovered by the Apache Tomcat Security Team.
