response headers in multipart HTTP responses. An attacker could
potentially exploit this issue to inject arbitrary cookie values.

ARM devices, which could lead to unexpected numeric conversions or
undefined behaviour. An attacker could possibly use this issue to cause a
denial of service. (CVE-2024-1552)
