A remote attacker can conduct a denial of service attack against SAP NetWeaver Management Console and HostControl (gSOAP), or affect its control flow, without authorization.
An attacker can use a denial of service vulnerability for terminating the process of the vulnerable component. As a result, nobody can use this service, which has a negative influence on business processes. System downtime also harms business reputation.
