Unicode bug restyled as DoS tool

Author: JT Smith

The Register: "The infamous Unicode IIS Web server exploit can also be used as a denial of
service attack tool.

Gray hat hacker Big Poop has published a site on the Internet explaining how the
Unicode bug, which permits the execution of commands on a Web server, can be
used to tie up system resources so that legitimate users can't access a site - a
classic DoS attack technique."
