Description Arun Babu Neelicattu 2014-10-27 03:37:42 UTC
It was discovered that Apache CXF JAX-RS services, via the SamlHeaderInHandler implementation, incorrectly handled invalid SAML tokens provided in authorization headers of requests. A remote attacker can trigger an infinite loop by providing specially crafted values in authorization headers leading to a Denial of Service attack.
