The remote Windows host is potentially affected by a vulnerability that
could allow for a denial of service condition.
The version of Windows installed on the remote host is potentially
affected by a denial of service vulnerability because the HTTP protocol
stack (HTTP.sys) may improperly handle a malicious HTTP header, causing
an infinite loop in the HTTP protocol. A remote, unauthenticated
attacker could exploit this flaw by sending a specially crafted HTTP
packet to the affected system, which could trigger the vulnerability.
