Multiple vulnerabilities have been identified in Sun Java System Web Server, which could be exploited by remote attackers to cause a denial of service or compromise a vulnerable system. These issues are caused by buffer overflow errors when processing malformed "TRACE" or "OPTIONS" requests, or overly long "Authorization: Digest" headers, which could be exploited by attackers to crash an affected server or execute arbitrary code. This exploit forces the server process to throw an unhandled exception and be restarted. WARNING: This is an early release module. This is not the final version of this module. It is a pre-released version in order to deliver a module as quickly as possible to our customers that may be useful in some situations.
