Thanks for the feedback chaps.

Lewis, the report is broken down into CVEs and the tools likelyhood of the
stuff it detected being accurate.

I think some stuff is pretty obvious, take for example Apache Commons
Collections, that had a Java Serialization bug that allowed for remote code
execution in 3.2.1 but is fixed in 3.2.2 (
and the issue has been in the wild since 2015. We can tackle simple stuff
like this just by shipping an updated version, I assume 3.2.1 to 3.2.2
shouldn't prove too arduous and update.

Others like CVE-2016-6809 need a bit more digging as their severity is high
but confidence low, but turns out Tika did have a matlab exploit that
seemingly got addressed in 1.14.

As I said,  I'm not looking to run out there and ship a big release to fix
all of these, but its worth addressing as we move forward.
