Issue/Introduction

There is a vulnerability associated with iDash (v12.1.00.00-0427 - bundled Tomcat8). What is the process for handling this vulnerability?

Title: (CVE-2019-17563) Apache Tomcat FORM Authentication Session Fixation Vulnerability

Technical Description:
When using FORM authentication with Apache Tomcat 9.0.0.M1 to 9.0.29, 8.5.0 to 8.5.49 and 7.0.0 to 7.0.98 there was a narrow window where an attacker could perform a session fixation attack. The window was considered too narrow for an exploit to be practical but, erring on the side of caution, this issue has been treated as a security vulnerability.

Technical Detail:
