Description Mark J. Cox 2007-08-03 05:39:38 EDT
A buffer "over-read" flaw was found in Apache httpd used for caching.  This
allows a malicious origin server to possibly cause a process crash on a caching
forward proxy, which is a DoS for a threaded MPM on httpd 2.0+

On httpd 1.3 this would cause a client crash but this is not considered a
security issue as httpd would continue to run and spawn new children as required.
