There exists a trivial DoS in webTV coming from plain 98
By sending a udp packet to the 22701-22705 (opened up by annclist.exe)
you can cause the program to crash or cause various blue screens etc.
The larger the size, the more dramitic the effects (lockups, reboots
Microsoft (secure () microsoft com) was advised around 13/8. I asked them
to get back to me a while ago, but I haven't heard any responses yet.
Oh yeah, port 22703 mainly causes reboots. Enjoy.
