IIS WebDav Denial of Service attacks - Update to SPI Dynamics

Content-Type: text/plain;
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

In SPI Dynamics own advisory it mentions that IIS will restart itself -
whilst this is true, by supplying a specific number of bytes, we can
terminate all the threads, but leaving INETINFO still alive.  Despite
INETINFO not dying, the process will no longer serve any requests.

This provides a more effective denial of service attack as the administrator
would be required to restart the service manually.

Again, if you have not yet patched your servers, the patch can be obtained
