Medium Nessus Plugin ID 11155
SynopsisThe remote web server may be vulnerable to a denial of service attack.
DescriptionThe remote web server does not respond after it receives a URL consisting of a long string of '%' characters.
Note that if the web server is protected with some sort of Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), this may be a false-positive.
SolutionIf the web server does indeed crash when scanned with this plugin, then upgrade or replace the server, protect it with a proxy, or firewall it.
