TippingPoint IPS DoS (High CPU load) (NEW)
Published: 2006-01-14,
Last Updated: 2006-01-14 05:57:28 UTC by Swa Frantzen (Version:

We are getting multiple reports of a DoS attack (causing high CPU load
that prevents normal use) against TippingPoint IPS devices.

We got a call from TippingPoint, stating that in their opinion this is
not a "DoS", but a "high load" issue.

For more details we'd like to urge customers to contact TippingPoint
directly. They are working on a patch and advisory which should be
available shortly.

Edit: We've received a report that TippingPoint has now released a
patch for this issue.  The patch version is TOS
