Subject: Regarding service request 1513650
Regarding your CVE service request, logged on 2023-08-28T11:09:47, we have the following question or update:
After review there are multiple perspectives on whether the issue information is helpful to consumers of the CVE List, our current preference is in the direction of keeping the CVE ID assignment. There is a valid weakness (integer overflow) that can lead to a valid security impact (denial of service, based on retrying network traffic much more often than is documented/requested). The record has been flagged as DISPUTED and the views have been recorded as a NOTE in the record as well. This request will now be closed.
Please do not hesitate to contact the CVE Team by replying to this email if you have any questions, or to provide more details.
Please do not change the subject line, which allows us to effectively track your request.
