Change Title

Update on Apache Tomcat and Apache HTTP Server Minor Versions

Change Type

Class 2

Change Summary

  1. Apache Tomcat (Product ID: 48)

    Minor versions of major versions 7.0.x, 8.5.x, 9.0.x,10.0.x will be kept in Technopedia and, since these versions are still currently supported or just recently reached EOL, we'll also map Normalize data to them.

    Minor versions for other major versions (e.g., 5.0.x, 6.0.x, 8.0.x) will also be kept in Technopedia; however, they are not going to be used in Normalize mapping since they have already been EOL for a long time (more than three years).

  2. Apache HTTP Server (Product ID: 80850)

    Minor versions of major version 2.4.x will be kept and, since these versions are still currently supported, Normalize mappings will also be done to them.

    Minor versions from other major versions will also be kept in Technopedia; however, they are not going to be used in Normalize mapping since they have already been EOL for a long time (more than three years).

These minor versions were previously flagged as 'To be deleted'. These flags will be removed (i.e., these minor versions will not be deleted).

Going forward, any newly released minor versions for these products will continue to be captured in Technopedia as well as being used in Normalize mappings.

Note that for security/vulnerability use-cases, we continue to map every detail/granular version of CPE to the discovered or evidence version, regardless of whether Normalize mapped them to major or minor versions.
