Doc Type: If docs needed, set a value
Doc Text:
It was found that string comparisons in .NET Core did not use a secure hashing algorithm. This could allow an attacker to predict string hashes and cause a denial of service by intentionally creating collisions thus forcing long look up times.

Description Trevor Jay 2018-03-06 12:32:13 UTC
Case insensitive string comparison uses an insecure hashing algorithm which can be compromised in .NET Core 1.x (Unix) and .NET Core 2.0. The attack vector could be a Dictionary which uses case invariant keys.
