Bastian Blank reported a denial of service vulnerability in
Email::Address, a Perl module for RFC 2822 address parsing and
creation[1]. Email::Address::parse uses significant time on parsing
empty quoted string, as allowed by RFC 2822.


Fixed in upstream version 1.905 which contain additional commits to avoid slowdowns.

I haven't touched this package (or Perl) in 7 years. I'm probably not the right person to assign this to.
Comment 3 Johannes Segitz 2014-06-20 12:54:42 UTC
Daniel, you're one of the bugowners, can you please take this one?
Comment 5 Johannes Segitz 2014-06-23 09:12:34 UTC
Next try. Can you please take care of this issue?
Comment 6 Thomas Abraham 2014-10-07 14:09:22 UTC
I know it's late, but I only recently realized that this was assigned to me.

I submitted mr 254516
Comment 7 Benjamin Brunner 2014-10-07 14:20:57 UTC
I changed needinfo to security-team@suse.de, after this is an security-issue.

Thanks Thomas.
