WindWeb <= 2.0 Malformed GET Request DoS

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3270


The remote web server is prone to denial of service attacks.


The remote host appears to be running the WindWeb web server, which is found on embedded devices running Wind River Systems' VxWorks such as certain ADSL modems and routers. The version of WindWeb installed on the remote host is affected by a remote denial of service vulnerability when it receives maliciously crafted requests. An attacker may be able to leverage this issue to deny access to the web server to legitimate users.
