Description

Multiple products with DNS implementation contains a flaw that may allow a remote denial of service. By sending a DNS query that appears to originate from the localhost on port 53/udp, the system will respond to itself, hence entering an infinite loop which causes the system to consume all available CPU resources, resulting in a loss of availability.
