Secunia Security Advisory - A vulnerability has been reported in ignitionServer, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) on vulnerable systems. The vulnerability is caused due to insufficient restrictions on the SERVER command. The command is designed for server to server communication, but can be exploited by clients to introduce non-existing servers to the network. This can further be exploited to cause a DoS by introducing multiple servers, which can potentially flood the network. The vulnerability reportedly affect versions 0.1.2 through 0.3.1.
