Subject Re: FW: cvs commit: httpd-2.0/modules/proxy proxy_http.c
Date Wed, 11 Dec 2002 16:38:08 GMT
Unless I'm missing something, this patch would make the
proxy vulnerable to a DoS.  An attacker could cause the
httpd to buffer an arbitrarily large amount of data simply
by sending an arbitrarily large request body, right?
