Not to disagree with Mark T... but the point about using old software is
still a good one.

 Tomcat 6.0.18 vs Tomcat 6.0.36

 OpenSSL 0.9.8k (25-Mar-2009) vs OpenSSL 0.9.8y (05-Feb-2013)

Focusing on particular issues like this, rather than addressing the big
picture and using a more recent build of Open SSL and/or Tomcat (that
will carry many fixes) means the OP is probably Doing IT Wrong.
