Uncontrolled Resource Consumption
A denial of service flaw was found in the way the server component of Freeciv before 2.3.4 processed certain packets. A remote attacker could send a specially-crafted packet that, when processed would lead to memory exhaustion or excessive CPU consumption.
CWE-400 - Uncontrolled resource consumption
An uncontrolled resource allocation attack (also known as resource exhaustion attack) triggers unauthorized overconsumption of the limited resources in an application, such as memory, file system storage, database connection pool entries, and CPU. This may lead to denial of service for valid users and degradation of the application's functionality as well as that of the host operating system.
