Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 167102
CAN-2005-2728 byterange memory DoS
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:20 EST
A flaw was found in Apache 2.0 where the byterange filter would buffer responses
into memory. This could cause a Denial of Service through memory leak if a
remote attacker sends carefully crafted requests to a web server that has a CGI
script which usually would give a large response.
