~   a. Tomcat Server Security Update
~   This release of VirtualCenter Server updates the Tomcat Server
~   package from 5.5.17 to 5.5.25, which addresses multiple security
~   issues that existed in the earlier releases of Tomcat Server.

~   The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
~   assigned the names CVE-2005-2090, CVE-2006-7195, and CVE-2007-0450 to

~   NOTE: These vulnerabilities can be exploited remotely only if the

~         service console be isolated from the VM network. Please see
