WorldClient Server v22.214.171.124 Subject to DoS
Reported November 25, 1999 by USSRLABS
USSRLabs discovered serveral denial of service conditions in Deerfield.com"s WorldClient Server v126.96.36.199. The problems are the result of buffer overflow conditions within the program code.
The problem affects the WorldClient service on port 2000. By sending a very long URL to the service listening on the port the service can be made to crash, thereby denying service to valid users.
UssrLabs notified Deefield.com about this problem, however no response is unknown at this time.
