13.12.04 OpenText FirstClass 8.0 HTTP Daemon /Search Remote DoS Vulnerability
The vulnerability is caused due to an error in the handling of large requests. This can e.g. be exploited to potentially cause a vulnerable server to stop responding or function correctly by sending a large amount of POST requests to "/Search" over multiple connections.
The vulnerability has been reported in version 7.1 and 8.0. Other versions may also be affected.
