Debian Security Advisory

DLA-528-1 libcommons-fileupload-java -- LTS security update

Date Reported:
26 Jun 2016
Affected Packages:
Security database references:
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2016-3092.
More information:

A denial of service vulnerability was identified in Commons FileUpload that occurred when the length of the multipart boundary was just below the size of the buffer (4096 bytes) used to read the uploaded file. This caused the file upload process to take several orders of magnitude longer than if the boundary was the typical tens of bytes long.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 1.2.2-1+deb7u3.

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