    MondoSearch is web site search engine made by MondoSoft.

    One of the files installed with the MondoSoft search engine can be used
    perform a Denial of Service attack on the vulnerable system, making the
    webserver unable to serve other requests.

    The vulnerability occurs when the MsmHigh.exe is called multiple times. The
    MondoSoft software will load a new instance of the file each time it is
    requested which will eventually consume all memory on the vulnerable system.

    The may allow an attacker to perform a Denial of Service attack.
