Loop with Unreachable Exit Condition ('Infinite Loop')
The DNS packet parser in YADIFA before 2.2.6 does not check for the presence of infinite pointer loops, and thus it is possible to force it to enter an infinite loop. This can cause high CPU usage and makes the server unresponsive.
CWE-835 - Loop with Unreachable Exit Condition
Loops with multiple exits and flags detract from the quality of an application. They tend to make control structures difficult to understand, and introduce the risk of non-termination and other structural problems. The vulnerability “loop with unreachable exit condition” enables attackers to exploit this flaw, leading to denial of service.
