Description Vincent Danen 2012-05-19 23:34:51 UTC
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 16:39:47 UTC
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...)
