Error description

  • The DOORS DB server crashes when receiving an initial packet
    longer that 1024 bytes.
    I could reproduce this behaviour with DOORS server 9.6.1.9 using
    Python script "DoS.py
    
    
    To reproduce:
    - make sure that you have a DDBS running locally on port 36677
    - install python 3
    - in a command prompt, browse to the directory containing the
    "DoS.py" file and type
    python DoS.py
    => DDBS crashes
    
    Issue is also reproducible when server side security is enabled.
