TMM cores when executing an HTTP::cookie command in an iRule. If the command does not have the minimum required number of arguments, the code is not checking for this condition; it assumes they are there.


Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.


An iRule command must execute an HTTP::cookie command (such as "HTTP::cookie sanitize") with missing required arguments.


Ensure all HTTP::cookie commands in iRules have the correct number of arguments. A work around is to add a line "log local0. some text" before the line "HTTP::cookie sanitize". Then, there will be no tmm crash.

Fix Information

Check to make sure all required arguments are present in an HTTP::cookie command prior to attempting to use them.
