Subject Re: [PATCH] Potential buffer overflow attach in mod_jk
Date Thu, 27 Sep 2001 00:42:16 GMT
Here's with jk_pool_strdup (against RC1, not HEAD).  It looked to me like
uw_map->p wasn't suitable for per-request allocations (i.e. it would just
eat memory until the server was re-started), and since this is in common, I
couldn't use ap_strdup since that breaks all non-Apache servers.
