Memory leak bug in Toxcore
The Tox project blog reports:
A memory leak bug was discovered in Toxcore that can be triggered remotely to
exhaust one’s system memory, resulting in a denial of service attack.
The bug is present in the TCP Server module of Toxcore and therefore it
affects mostly bootstrap nodes. Regular Tox clients generally have the
TCP Server functionality disabled by default, leaving them unaffected.
