XML to XStream could use this flaw to perform a variety of attacks,
including remote code execution in the context of the server running the
XStream application. (CVE-2013-7285)

It was found that when Tomcat processed a series of HTTP requests in which
at least one request contained either multiple content-length headers, or
one content-length header with a chunked transfer-encoding header, Tomcat
would incorrectly handle the request. A remote attacker could use this flaw
to poison a web cache, perform cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks, or
obtain sensitive information from other requests. (CVE-2013-4286)
