Released 0.12.2

Bugfix version 0.12.2 has been released.

This fixes a DoS vulnerability caused due to an error when handling certain HTTP headers. This could be exploited to terminate an affected server via e.g. specially crafted HTTP headers containing wide characters.

Upgrade is strongly advised Download

The new version is already available in debian unstable.

Thanks to ipax of DcLabs Security Group for finding and reporting the issue.

Released 0.12.1

Bugfix version 0.12.1 has just been released.

It fixes a DoS bug that will make weborf crash in case of a malformed request.

Upgrade is strongly advised Download

The problem is due to a missing check while parsing the Range header. So for instance a request like the following would make weborf terminate.

GET /index.html HTTP/0.9
Range: 1-2
