CVE-2010 Request: quake3 / openarena-server: DDoS by processing 'getstatus' and 'rcon' packets

Hello Kurt, Steve, vendors,

  yet in 2010 the following problem has been corrected in Quake3 / OpenArena:

  A distributed denial of service flaw was found in the way Quake3 Arena /
OpenArena servers used to handle 'getstatus' and 'rcon' (remote command)
connectionless requests. A remote attacker could use this flaw to perform
distributed denial of service attack against the target server IP gameserver by
spoofing certain packets.

Could you allocate a CVE-2010-* CVE identifier for this issue?

Thank you && Regards, Jan.

P.S.: There doesn't seem to be a CVE identifier for this issue yet:

      mentions various Quake3 related security flaws, but doesn't
      this concrete issue yet.
