VERSIONS EFFECTED
  • Ceilidh 2.6a

DESCRIPTION

By using a specially crafted POST statement it is possible to spawn multiple copies of ceilidh.exe program where each process takes approximately 1% of available CPU cycles as well as approximately 700k of memory. Because of the memory resources are not freed properly it is possible to deny service to a Web system hosting the software. In addition, ceilidh.exe uses hidden form fields to store the true physical path location of its files.
