Description :

Chintan Trivedi discovered a Denial of Service vulnerability in
apache2. The field length limit was not enforced for certain malicious
requests. This could permit a remote attacker who is able to send large
amounts of data to a server to cause HTTP server instances to consume
proportional amounts of memory, which can render the service
unavailable.
