Severity: 3-Major


When server-side inflate is being invoked on a completely valid compressed response, the connection is aborted.


Server side virtual server configurations with SSL and profiles or iRules involving inflating/decompressing the response may yield to aborted connections. Such configurations include but are not limited to APM Portal Access, LTM Rewrite profiles (e.g. URI-translation).


Such a condition may occur on a virtual server configuration with a server-side SSL enabled and with any profile (or iRule) that would involve decompressing the [server-side] response (e.g. APM Portal Access, LTM Uri-Translation).
