The remote web server is prone to denial of service attacks.
The remote host is running a version of Lotus Domino Server's web
service that is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.
By sending a specially crafted HTTP request with a long string of
unicode characters, a remote attacker can crash the nHTTP.exe process,
denying service to legitimate users.
Note that IBM has released technote #1202446 for this issue but has
been unable to reproduce it.
