CVE-2019-9517 (retired)

Priority
Description
Some HTTP/2 implementations are vulnerable to unconstrained interal data
buffering, potentially leading to a denial of service. The attacker opens
the HTTP/2 window so the peer can send without constraint; however, they
leave the TCP window closed so the peer cannot actually write (many of) the
bytes on the wire. The attacker then sends a stream of requests for a large
response object. Depending on how the servers queue the responses, this can
consume excess memory, CPU, or both.
