Serious anti-social behavior.

If you can't isolate this webapp into a separate Tomcat instance, you might try configuring
a SecurityManager to prevent updating of system properties by this lump of code.  Of course,
that might just make the webapp blow up with an exception.

Definitely complain to the vendor, withholding payment, if possible.
