Resource Management Errors


Severity Medium
Score 4/10


The Unreal engine, as used in Unreal Tournament 3 1.3, Unreal Tournament 2003 and 2004, Dead Man's Hand, Pariah, WarPath, Postal2, and Shadow Ops, allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (server exit) via multiple file downloads from the server, which triggers an assertion failure when the Closing flag in UnChan.cpp is set.
