Web is vulnerable to hashing denial-of-service attack #hashdos with Demo | The Hacker News THN

Researchers have shown how a flaw that is common to most popular Web programming languages can be used to launch denial-of-service attacks by exploiting  hash tables. Researchers presented information on a long standing vulnerability in most web application frameworks at 28th Chaos Communication Congress security conference in Berlin, Germany, Earth, Milky Way. Alexander “alech” Klink and Julian “zeri” Wälde delivered a demonstration and lecture titled “Efficient Denial of Service Attacks on Web Application Platforms”.
