Description Lubomir Kundrak 2007-03-14 11:32:48 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #232241 +++

Description of problem:

CUPS doesn't use separate workers for connections. During SSL
negotiation it does not accept new connections from anyone so
any user can DoS the server with unfinished negotiation.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Both 1.2 <= 1.2.7 and 1.1 are affected.
I was able to reproduce on RHEL4, RHEL5.
FC6 (1.2.7) is already fixed.

How reproducible:

SSL support needs to be enabled. Default in 1.2.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch the attached reproducer (eventually modify appropriately)
2. Let it run for at least 10 secs (to ensure that the server is not patched)
3. Attempt another connection to the CUPS server.
Actual results:

For 1.1, you'll likely use a different port number.
