CVE-1999-1075 - Learnable Spans


inetd in AIX 4.1.5 dynamically assigns a port N when starting ttdbserver (ToolTalk server) but also inadvertently listens on port N-1 without passing control to ttdbserver which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via a large number of connections to port N-1 which are not properly closed by inetd.
