Issue/Introduction

 

When running a Web Agent on Apache, when the Browser and Web Agent
machines are using IPV6 Addresses, then the Apache crashes with the
following stack :

  Thread 129 (Thread 0x7f8921fef700 (LWP 27387)):

      from /opt/CA/webagent/bin/libHttpPlugin.so  

 

Cause

 

There was a bug in the code where the Web Agent mistakenly treat some
hostname as an IPv6 address since the check is wrong and it checked
for all hexadecimal chars to determine if it's IPv6.

 

Environment

 

Web Agent 12.52SP1CR06 64bit on Apache on RedHat;

 

Resolution

 

Upgrade the Web Agent to 12.52SP1CR07 to fix this issue (1).
