This bug was fixed in the package tomcat7 - 7.0.52-1ubuntu0.7

tomcat7 (7.0.52-1ubuntu0.7) trusty-security; urgency=medium

  * SECURITY UPDATE: privilege escalation via insecure init script
    - debian/tomcat7.init: don't follow symlinks when handling the
      catalina.out file.
    - CVE-2016-1240
  * SECURITY REGRESSION: change in behaviour after security update
    (LP: #1609819)
    - debian/patches/CVE-2015-5345-2.patch: fix using the new
      mapperContextRootRedirectEnabled option in
      java/org/apache/catalina/connector/, change
      mapperContextRootRedirectEnabled default to true in
      webapps/docs/config/context.xml. This reverts the change in behaviour
      following the CVE-2015-5345 security update and was also done
      upstream in later releases.
