CVSTrac malformed URI infinite loop DoS Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for CVSTrac version

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host seems to be running cvstrac,
a web-based bug and patch-set tracking system for CVS.

This version contains a flaw related to the parameter parser
that may allow a possible hacker to create a malformed URL,
which causes the application to hang. A possible hacker, exploiting
this flaw, would only need network access to the cvstrac server.
Upon sending a malformed link, the cvstrac server would go into
an infinite loop, rendering the services as unavailable.

***** simply by looking at the version number(s) of CVSTrac
***** installed there.
