CVE ID         : CVE-2023-44487
Debian Bug     : 1054232

A vulnerability has been identified in h2o, a high-performance web server
with support for HTTP/2.

A security vulnerability CVE-2023-44487 was discovered that could potentially
be exploited to disrupt server operation.

The vulnerability in the h2o HTTP/2 server was related to the handling of
certain types of HTTP/2 requests. In certain scenarios, an attacker could
send a series of malicious requests, causing the server to process them
rapidly and exhaust system resources.

The applied upstream patch changes the ABI. Therefore, if your application
is built against any shared libraries of h2o, you need to rebuild it.
No Debian package is affected.
