Mathematica License Manager Connected Port Denial Of Service Vulnerability

Mathematica is a math calculation software package distributed and maintained by Wolfram Research.

The Mathematica License Manager does not correctly handle connection requests. Upon receiving a request from a client, the server does not fork established connections to a seperate port for service. Additionally, a client placing a request the server can not interpret is not disconnected.

This makes it possible for a remote user to deny service to legitimate users of the service.
