Comment 4 David A. Cafaro 2014-09-16 01:46:31 UTC
The fix for this has been deemed to intrusive and complicated to back port.  Upstream is not releasing a back port patch for this.  Please see related tickets for details:



Proposed workaround is:

"Python applications should validate the length/size of the data before storing the data in hash tables or dictionaries this should stop most of the hash-collision related denial of service attacks."
