high Nessus Plugin ID 20983
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The remote Windows application is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.


A malicious user can cause a denial of service by sending malformed SRP packets to the BlackBerry Router on port 3101.

Note that successful exploitation of this issue by a remote attacker is reportedly possible only through manipulation of DNS queries.


Install the appropriate service pack / hotfix as described in the vendor advisory referenced above.
