Subject [jira] Created: (DIRMINA-454) Trivial denial of service in TextLineDecoder

Trivial denial of service in TextLineDecoder

                 Key: DIRMINA-454
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRMINA-454
             Project: MINA
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Filter
    Affects Versions: 1.1.2
            Reporter: Owen Jacobson

In both of TextLineDecoder's decoding methods, the decoder only checks the size of input after
it's found at least one line ending character.  Infinitely long streams of, say, 'y's will
cause the decoder to try to buffer up data until the JVM falls over.
