Humberto Diogenes <humberto at digi.com.br> added the comment:
This was solved in Python 3.0: http.server now uses email.parser (issue2848), which is not
vulnerable to the DoS attack mentioned by Nick.
Should we backport these changes to 2.6? As HTTPMessage's base class was changed to
email.message, additional work would be necessary to maintain API compatibility (ie.:
implementing an interface similar to mimetools.Message in HTTPMessage).
