Description

Apache Tomcat 4.0.1 has been reported prone to a remotely triggered denial of service vulnerability when handling undisclosed non-HTTP request types.

It has been reported that when certain specific non-HTTP request types are handled by the Tomcat HTTP connector the Tomcat server will reject subsequent requests on the affected port until the service is restarted.
