In the Tomcat servlet.. we don't rely on any file in SPECROOT/tomcat/webapps/ROOT directory, so those files may be deleted.
The SPECROOT/tomcat/webapps/examples directory can be safely removed as well.
Nessus security scanning tool reports vulnerabilities and on scanning Tomcat Apache Tomcat servlet/JSP container default reports to delete any files that are not needed
What files can be deleted in tomcat / JSP area?
