Luigi Auriemma has reported a vulnerability in NASCAR Racing, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).
The vulnerability is caused due to an error within the handling of empty (zero bytes) UDP datagrams. This can be exploited to cause the affected application to enter an infinite loop and consume 100% CPU resources.
The vulnerability has been reported in NASCAR Racing 22.214.171.124.6, NASCAR Racing 2002 Season 126.96.36.199, and NASCAR Racing 2003 Season 188.8.131.52. Other versions may also be affected.
