The Jetty Project is announcing a critical security release of Jetty 

   Jetty 9.2.9.v20150224

This release is considered a critical security release for all
users of Jetty 9.2.3 through 9.2.8.

The Highlights:

  + A critical security vulnerability has been fixed with how Jetty
    reports 400 Invalid Character responses when the HttpParser
    encounters an error.
    This 400 response can contain information from past buffer
    use from within Jetty.  Revealing random buffer contents
    from other previously handled requests.
