Package        : yaws
Vulnerability  : denial of service
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id         : CVE-2009-0751


It was discovered that yaws, a high performance HTTP 1.1 webserver, is
prone to a denial of service attack via a request with a large HTTP
header.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.77-3+lenny1.

For the oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.65-4etch1.
