Package : yaws
Vulnerability : denial of service
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id : CVE-2009-0751


It was discovered that yaws, a high performance HTTP 1.1 webserver, is
prone to a denial of service attack via a request with a large HTTP
header.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.77-3+lenny1.

For the oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.65-4etch1.

For the testing distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution
(sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1.80-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your yaws package.
