CVE-2019-10071: Timing Attack in HMAC Verification in Apache Tapestry

Affected versions:
- Apache Tapestry 5.3.6 through current releases.

Apache Tapestry uses HMACs to verify the integrity of objects stored on the
client side.  This was added to address the Java deserialization
disclosed in CVE-2014-1972.  In the fix for the previous vulnerability, the
HMACs were compared by string comparison, which is known to be vulnerable to
timing attacks.

No new release of Tapestry has occurred since the issue was reported.
