830254: CVE-2012-2682 cumin: DoS via displayed link names containing non-ASCII characters
It was found that if Cumin were asked to display a link name containing non-ASCII characters, the request would terminate with an error. If data containing non-ASCII characters were added to the database (such as via Cumin or Wallaby), requests to load said data would terminate and the requested page would not be displayed until an administrator cleans the database.
