Microsoft ISA Server Proxy Service memory leak denial of service
|isa-proxy-memory-leak-dos (6990)||Medium Risk|
Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server is vulnerable to a denial of service attack, caused by a memory leak in the Proxy Service. If a remote attacker from within the network sends a large number of specially-crafted requests to the Proxy Service, the attacker can cause all memory resources to be consumed, which would cause the server to stop responding. The server must be restarted to regain normal functionality.
