===============
1) Introduction
===============


SÖLDNER is a tactical military game developed by Wings Simulations
and released in May 2004.

2) Bug
======


Each UDP packet for this game can contain various blocks of data.
The type 0x80 forces the server to perform a cycle from zero to the 32
bit number (so max 0xffffffff) specified in that data block.
The maximum size of a packet supported by the game is 1400 bytes in
which is possible to place max 233 blocks of this type causing the
freeze of a server for over 2 hours (tested with a fast CPU).
