Internet Security Systems BlackICE and RealSecure DoS Vulnerability

by Nikola Strahija on February 6th, 2002 A denial of service condition has been reported in Internet Security Systems's BlackICE Defender, BlackICE Agent and RealSecure Server Sensor,which can be exploited by a remote user. Exploitation is achievable via a ping flood attack.


Sending a continuous series of ICMP Echo Request (Ping) 10,000 byte packets to a target host, could cause the host to reboot.

Reportedly, only Windows 2000 and XP hosts are susceptible to this issue.
