A buffer overflow can cause an open unsecured server to crash or malfunction after 2GB is received." Unfortunately, the subversion repo on sourceforge for gSOAP only has full releases, not individual changes, in each commit, so the fix appears to be somewhere mixed in [r119] on https://sourceforge.net/p/gsoap2/code/commit_browser making it a challenge for distros who want to patch instead of upgrade. -- -Alan Coopersmith- alan.coopersmith@...cle.com Oracle Solaris Engineering - https://blogs.oracle.com/alanc
