Description: ------------ Fatal error: Call to a member function on a non-object in PEAR\HTTP\Server.php on line 219 The problem is that $request is false when a bad request is received. The line 203 to 205 could be changed from: $request = &HTTP_Server_Request::parse($data); $this->_serveRequest($clientId, $request); to: $request = &HTTP_Server_Request::parse($data); if($request === false) { $this->onBadRequest($clientId, $data); } $this->_serveRequest($clientId, $request); Reproduce code: --------------- Just star the server and send a bad Request like: HTTPFOO/1.0 Expected result: ---------------- Server should handle the bad request Actual result: -------------- A fatal error and server shutdown

I've verified this error and involves a security problem of the class.
