CVE-2010-1623

Published: 04 October 2010

Memory leak in the apr_brigade_split_line function in buckets/apr_brigade.c in the Apache Portable Runtime Utility library (aka APR-util) before 1.3.10, as used in the mod_reqtimeout module in the Apache HTTP Server and other software, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via unspecified vectors related to the destruction of an APR bucket.

Priority

Medium

Notes

AuthorNote
mdeslaur
will be fixed in apache2 2.2.17.
apache2 has an embedded code copy of apr-util. Dapper uses
the embedded version, hardy+ uses the system apr-util.
apache2 2.2.15+ also use the code in mod_reqtimeout
lucid mod_reqtimeout backport already contains this fix
