Description

Two vulnerabilities in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 update 16 and earlier, 5.0 update 21 and earlier, 1.4.2_23 and earlier as well as 1.3.1_26 and earlier are vulnerable to a denial of service involving decoding DER encoded data and parsing HTTP headers. This may allow a remote client to cause the JRE on the server to run out of memory, resulting in a DoS (Denial of Service) condition.
