Description

MultipartStream.java in Apache Commons FileUpload before 1.3.1, as used in Apache Tomcat, JBoss Web, and other products, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop and CPU consumption) via a crafted Content-Type header that bypasses a loop's intended exit conditions.

Solution(s)

  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-dev-java-commons-fileupload
  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-www-servers-tomcat
