You keep top-posting, which is not nice.
Here is how it's done :

Well, you are probably right to worry, but not about Tomcat.

If you are on a Windows PC, do this :
- install "wget" (you'll find it on the WWW)
- do :
cd \temp
C:\temp>wget -O suspect.js 

and then have a look at that "suspect.js"

Since it is not in the original file on the server, and since I cannot imagine how 
anything on the server can just "insert that section" into the page before returning it, 
we have to imagine that the insertion happens on your workstation.
Which looks to me like a possible virus/trojan.
Or an unexpected effect of the javascript that is already in your page, but possibly 
malware anyway.

Scan you PC.

And I will re-scan mine, because I also viewed your test page.
