The Expression Language (EL) implementation in Apache Tomcat 6.x
before 6.0.44, 7.x before 7.0.58, and 8.x before 8.0.16 does not
properly consider the possibility of an accessible interface
implemented by an inaccessible class, which allows attackers to bypass
a SecurityManager protection mechanism via a web application that
leverages use of incorrect privileges during EL evaluation.
