The remote web server is vulnerable to a denial of service
Microsoft IIS, running Frontpage extensions, is vulnerable to
a remote denial of service attack usually called the 'malformed
web submission' vulnerability. An attacker, exploiting this
vulnerability, will be able to render the service unusable.
If this machine serves a business-critical function,
there could be an impact to the business.
