     WebSocket client was missing. It is now enabled by default (bsc#1102379).
   - CVE-2018-8037: If an async request was completed by the application at
     the same time as the container triggered the async timeout, a race
     condition existed that could have resulted in a user seeing a response
     intended for a different user. An additional issue was present in the
     NIO and NIO2 connectors that did not correctly track the closure of the
     connection when an async request was completed by the application and
     timed out by the container at the same time. This could also have
     resulted in a user seeing a response intended for another user
