Description Vincent Danen 2013-01-14 23:48:12 UTC
Upstream released [1] Rack 1.4.2, 1.3.7, 1.2.6, and 1.1.4 to fix a denial of service condition when Rack parses content with a certain Content-Disposition header as noted in the original report [2].

This has been fixed in git [3].

Additionally, a second flaw that was fixed in 1.4.4, 1.3.9, 1.2.7, and 1.1.5 was also announced [4] that creates a minor denial of service condition, this time in the Rack::Auth::AbstractRequest, where it symbolized arbitrary strings (apparently this has something to do with authentication, but there is no further information provided other than the fix [5] itself, which is noted as "a breaking API change").
