A game server is running on the remote host.
The remote host is running a GameSpy server. This service is used to
host a gaming server.
Since it uses UDP as its transport layer and sends multiple UDP packets
in response to one request, an attacker can abuse it to flood a
third-party host with traffic by sending a spoofed UDP packet with the
IP address of their target as the source field.
