Vulnerability title: Remote Denial Of Service In BSS Continuity CMS
|Reported by:||Jerzy Kramarz|
By repeatedly calling node enumeration script, a remote unauthenticated attacker can overload the underlying database within a few minutes. An average number of GET requests that would stop the database supporting the CMS were found to be 70, and in this point the Database daemon have to be restarted. The vulnerability exists within the system due to heavy processing invoked by the ‘fix paths’ script, which attempts to connect to every node in the system and reiterate its properties via database update function.
Loss of availability.
Exploit code is not required.
