Crash 20 Requests Paralels

Vendor Response:
Due to the fact that the component in question is an installation script,
the vendor has stated that the attack surface is too small to warrant
a fix:

"We would be possible for us to communicate the details of the test, so
we can arrange a hotfix."

VSLA Virtual Security Labs Anywhere recommends installing the hotfix,
hardware/software to be putting in a production environment.

Remediation Steps:
No official fix for these issues will be released for the Elipse.
However, administrators can mitigate these issues defining rules within
a web application firewall (WAF) solution.

Vendor Communication Timeline:
10/24/2013 - Vulnerability disclosed
