Symantec Ghost Configuration Server DoS Attack

Symantec Ghost is vulnerable to a trivial denial of service via TCP port 1347. The configuration server of Symantec Ghost listens on port 1347. If a remote attacker were to connect to port 1347 and supply a character string consisting of approximately 45 kilobytes, Symantec Ghost would cease to function properly. Restarting the application is required in order to regain normal operations.
