Caudium Web Server < 1.4.4 RC2 Malformed URI DoS

High

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a Denial of Service (DoS) attack.

Description

The remote host is running Caudium Web Server. The version being run is vulnerable to an attack where a malformed URI causes the web server to stop responding to requests. An attacker exploiting this flaw would only need to be able to connect to the Webserver and issue an HTTP 'GET' request.

Solution

Upgrade to version 1.4.4 RC2 or higher.
