> gdomap (GNUstep Distributed Objects nameserver)

> After receiving a crafted invalid request, gdomap will attempt to log
> an error message to the system logger. However, due to incorrect setup
> of the logger during server initialization, the logger and gdomap
> itself will mess up program state enough that program execution will
> be aborted. gdomap listens to all interfaces, allowing a remote
> unauthenticated attacker to DOS the nameserver.
