Apache – CVE-2010-1623


Kayran has detected a flaw in the apr_brigade_split_line() function of the bundled APR-util library.
Also known as CVE-2010-1623.
It’s being used to process non-SSL requests.

A remote attacker could send requests, carefully crafting the timing of individual bytes, which would slowly consume memory.
Memory consumption will potentially cause a denial of service (DoS) via unspecified vectors related to the destruction of an APR bucket.

This will cause a decrease in performance and also for interruptions in the availability of resources.


CVSS Version 2.0 – 5.0 Medium


To fix CVE-2010-1623, update the version of Apache Portable Runtime Utility library (APR-util) to 1.3.10 or higher.
