A few 2.7 Issues
2005-11-01 15:18:03 GMT
This is a 2 part email regarding what appears to be a bug and also minor enhancement request
Fist off this is a Slackware 10.2 box / Perl 5.8.7 / GNUMP3d 2.7
Both issues revolve around authentication via password protection.
When navigate go to my gnump3d server which is configured for password protection, and purposly fail the login prompt, the child perl process uses ~50% CPU indefinately and spews this repeatedly to the error log:
Use of uninitialized value in length at (eval 26) line 414.
Use of uninitialized value in pattern match (m//) at (eval 26) line 397.
Use of uninitialized value in pattern match (m//) at (eval 26) line 405.
I only allowed it to run for 15 minutes, but it appears to be an infinite loop. Has anyone see anything similar ?
It seems to me that on a failed login attempt (and I would assume a denied host - although I havn't tested that one) that, as a matter of course, the server should disclose as little information as possible about the service to which access was denied.
Currently upon bad login you are greeted with a fully templated error page that states both the applications name and exact revision.
Would it be possible to add an option for a "sparse" error page on access denied?
