Microsoft IIS contains a flaw that allows a remote attacker to cause a denial of service. The issue is due to the presence of a default script (search.asp) of a sample site named "ExAir". If the script is called without having the proper DLL files running, it will cause the server CPU to increase to 100% usage.
Remote / Network Access
Denial of Service
Loss of Availability
Currently, there are no known upgrades or patches to correct this issue. It is possible to correct the flaw by implementing the following workaround: Delete the sample scripts from the web server, or restrict access to them.
