Uncontrolled Resource Consumption
XNIO prior to 3.7.9.Final and 3.8.0.Final through 3.8.1.Final has a file descriptor leak caused by growing amounts of NIO Selector file handles between garbage collection cycles. This may allow an attacker to cause a denial of service.
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.
