The detail defect content of 12.52 SP1 CR07 release note (1).

  00692205 DE280513 Web agent crashes when the machines use IPV6 addresses

 

Resolution

 

The defect is caused when using Ipv6 address and accessing to Web Agent
Server.

There is possibility of a crash when client requests HOST header
contain IPv6 address.

Reproduce sequence is as below:

***********************************

If you set the hosts file on your browser PC as 

10.0.xxx.xxx myhost

Then reaching the request : 

  http://myhost/test/index.html 

Then the error.log shows the lines : 

  terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::out_of_range' 
  what(): basic_string::at 
  [Fri Feb 24 15:35:31 2017] [notice] child pid 11974 exit signal Aborted (6)   

***********************************

As above, there was a bug in the code that when we were trying to
append the port when there is an ipv6 address as the hostname.
