CVE-2017-2666

Description

It was discovered in Undertow that the code that parsed the HTTP request line permitted invalid characters. This could be exploited, in conjunction with a proxy that also permitted the invalid characters but with a different interpretation, to inject data into the HTTP response. By manipulating the HTTP response the attacker could poison a web-cache, perform an XSS attack, or obtain sensitive information from requests other than their own. #### Bugs * <http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=864405> * <https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1436163>
