Known Affected Versions:
15.1.0,,,,,, 15.1.1, 15.1.2,

Opened: Jan 11, 2021
Severity: 3-Major


An unexpected RST occurs on ASM inbound traffic. The rst cause shows "Internal error (ASM requested abort (payload release error))"


ASM traffic is affected.


Specific configuration with specific traffic


Can be workaround by one of the following: 1. Turn off data guard or change it to blocking. 2. Make the server reply with zipped responses (perhaps by adding the accept-encoding: gzip using an irule) 3. Add an additional response related feature. 4. use the following irule in case there aren't cookie related enforcement: when HTTP_REQUEST { set cookies [HTTP::cookie names] foreach aCookie $cookies { if {$aCookie matches_regex {^TS(?:[0-9a-fA-F]{6,8})(?:$|_[0-9]+$)}} { HTTP::cookie remove $aCookie } } }
