which may allow execution of arbitrary code.


Background

Unaffected: >= 1.4.1-r2

Impact

A remote attacker could send a specially crafted request, possibly
resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the

context-dependent attacker may be able to obtain sensitive information.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.
