Description Mark J. Cox 2005-08-30 11:47:08 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #167102 +++

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.

Comment 2 Joe Orton 2005-08-30 12:23:40 UTC
Note that this also affects any dynamic response generator such as PHP.

Comment 3 Mark J. Cox 2005-08-31 14:45:27 UTC
Will be async, marking as dupe of RHEL4 bug
