Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2007:029
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : libsoup
Date : January 26, 2007
Affected: 2006.0, 2007.0, Corporate 3.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

The soup_headers_parse function in soup-headers.c for libsoup HTTP
library before 2.2.99 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (crash) via malformed HTTP headers, probably involving missing
fields or values.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
