Description Jan Lieskovsky 2013-05-10 11:34:32 UTC
A denial of service flaw was found in the way chunked transfer encoding input filter of Apache Tomcat, an Apache Servlet/JSP Engine, processed CRLF sequences at the end of data chunks in certain circumstances. When the chunked transfer encoding was enabled, a remote attacker could issue a specially-crafted request that, when processed would lead to (limited) denial of service of the Apache Tomcat server.

Relevant upstream patch:
* for Apache Tomcat 6.x:
  http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=revision&revision=1476592 

* for Apache Tomcat 7:x:
  http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=rev&rev=1378702
