Description

Apache 2.0 versions before Apache 2.0.45 had a significant Denial of Service vulnerability. Remote attackers could cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via large chunks of linefeed characters, which causes Apache to allocate 80 bytes for each linefeed.

Solution(s)

  • apache-httpd-upgrade-2_0_45
