Description Vincent Danen 2013-11-19 19:20:43 EST
Florian Weimer reported that the hash function in the json-c library was weak, and that parsing smallish JSON strings showed quadratic timing behaviour.  This could cause an application linked to the json-c library, and that processes some specially-crafted JSON data, to use excessive amounts of CPU.


This issue was discovered by Florian Weimer of the Red Hat Product Security Team.
