How to fix?

Upgrade tempesta-tech/tempesta to version or higher.

Overview

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Allocation of Resources Without Limits or Throttling due to improperly configured rate limits, which are not enabled by default and may be set too large to effectively mitigate empty CONTINUATION frames attacks or too small, resulting in inadequate handling of normal HTTP requests. An attacker can exploit this weakness by sending specially crafted requests to cause service disruption or degrade the performance of the application.
