Description

An information disclosure flaw was found in mod_jk, the Tomcat Connector module for Apache. If a buggy client included the 'Content-Length' header without providing request body data, or if a client sent repeated requests very quickly, one client could obtain a response intended for another client.

The oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version 1:1.2.18-3etch2.
