Description Vincent Danen 2012-05-19 19:34:51 EDT
Certain input provided to the tornado.web.RequestHandler.set_header() function in tornado prior to 2.2.1 was reported [1].  This flaw could be used to expose arbitrary HTTP headers in a response sent to the user.

Comment 2 Thomas Spura 2012-05-20 12:39:47 EDT
This CVE is already reported in bug #822852.

Closing as a dublicate as there is also an CVE number.
(Correct me, if this needs to be handled differently...)
