CVE-2010-1157 (
  Apache Tomcat 5.5.0 through 5.5.29 and 6.0.0 through 6.0.26 might

  WWW-Authenticate header in the reply.

We now have 6.0.28. I think we should start deprecating 5.5 as we don't have anyone interested in maintaining it. Do you do the masking?
Comment 3 Stefan Behte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2010-09-03 22:37:00 UTC
Someone please mask, I cannot do it.
Comment 4 Paul B. Henson 2010-10-20 20:06:09 UTC
5.5 is still considered production upstream and there are still apps that require it :(. It would be nice to have a current version in portage. I tried to make a .31 ebuild myself but had some weird compilation failures that my limited java skills couldn't make sense of. For somebody who knew what they were doing ;) it probably wouldn't take much time to whip out a new working ebuild...
