Description

It was discovered that the Apache Commons FileUpload package for Java could enter an infinite loop while processing a multipart request with a crafted Content-Type, resulting in a denial-of-service condition.

For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 1.2.2-1+deb6u2.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 1.2.2-1+deb7u2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1.3.1-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libcommons-fileupload-java packages.
