A potential security exposure due to the Java™ HashTable implementation which can result in a Denial of Service (DoS)
A security exposure was found in all versions of WebSphere Application Server which have shipped with WebSphere Commerce.

With too many collisions, performance is significantly impaired and can lead to a denial of service.
