Impact

Unnecessary memory allocations which could cause the Enforcer to run out of memory. The system posts an error similar to the following: 'ASM out of memory error: event code X239 Exceeded maximum memory assigned for XML/JSON processing'.

Conditions

System parses as XML a large multipart file upload.

Workaround

None

Fix Information
