Description

The affected asset is vulnerable to this vulnerability ONLY if a server has a dynamic resource such as a CGI script or PHP script which generates a large amount of data, an attacker could send carefully crafted requests. Review your web server configuration for validation. A flaw in the byterange filter would cause some responses to be buffered into memory.
