=============== 1) Introduction ===============

Pigeon is a communication system for LANs and uses a clients-server architecture.

A login field longer than 8180 chars sent to the port 3103 causes the immediate freeze of the Pigeon server that enters in an infinite loop, so CPU raises at 100% and is impossible to login and to send/receive messages.
