Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1441) _rewrite handler loops cause cpu load and swap of death
Date Thu, 15 Mar 2012 20:52:37 GMT


Dave Cottlehuber commented on COUCHDB-1441:

should have added that this requires admin access to DB or server to do this, its not a DoS
opportunity. More like "rm -rf may cause premature data & job loss".
