A vulnerability has been discovered in Webwasher CSM Suite 5.x, Webwasher 6.x, Webwasher PG, and Webwasher EE. Successful exploitation would cause a DoS (Denial of Service). The issue lies in an error that presents itself in the processing of URLs while running on a newer Linux system. The end result is that the service freezes via a carefully crafted URL. This vulnerability has been rated as "less critical."
