Jetty hash denial of service
|jetty-hash-dos (72017)||Medium Risk|
Jetty is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by insufficient randomization of hash data structures. By sending multiple specially-crafted HTTP POST requests to an affected application containing conflicting hash key values, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause the consumption of CPU resources.
