Description

A denial of service vulnerability exists when Microsoft Common Object Runtime Library improperly handles web requests.

A remote unauthenticated attacker could exploit this vulnerability by issuing specially crafted requests to the .NET application. The update addresses the vulnerability by correcting how the .NET web application handles web requests.
