      The National Vulnerability Database provides the following description for this vulnerability: Incomplete Cleanup vulnerability in Apache Tomcat.

      The internal fork of Commons FileUpload packaged with Apache Tomcat 9.0.70 through 9.0.80 and 8.5.85 through 8.5.93 included an unreleased,
      in progress refactoring that exposed a potential denial of service on
      Windows if a web application opened a stream for an uploaded file but
      failed to close the stream. The file would never be deleted from disk
      creating the possibility of an eventual denial of service due to the
      disk being full.

      Users are recommended to upgrade to version 9.0.81 onwards or 8.5.94 onwards, which fixes the issue.
