I just released 0.10.7 (security release). It fixes a possible DoS
vulnerability that is caused by hash collisions in CPython dicts.
This bug is not specific to bottle. I you are using other frameworks,
check for updates there too.
application server does not recognize attacks using multi-collisions, an
attacker can degenerate the hash table by sending lots of colliding
keys. The algorithmic complexity of inserting n elements into the table
then goes to O(n**2), making it possible to exhaust hours of CPU time
using a single HTTP request."
This workaround limits the number of GET, POST and cookie parameters to
a reasonable number of 100 key/value pairs per request, reducing the
effectiveness of attacks. Normal web applications should not need to
process more than 100 parameters per request, but this limit can be
changed by setting Request.MAX_PARAMS to a different value.
