Loop with Unreachable Exit Condition ('Infinite Loop')
Envoy 1.12.0 allows a remote denial of service because of resource loops, as demonstrated by a single idle TCP connection being able to keep a worker thread in an infinite busy loop when continue_on_listener_filters_timeout is used."
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.
