Description Laura Pardo 2018-12-18 21:22:56 UTC
The methods for sending and receiving data on a WebSocket accept a CancellationToken, but previously did not implement actual support for cancellation. Activating the cancellation token would result in a no-op, and would not cancel any in progress operations. This provided a potential avenue for DOS, by tying up connections to a server with WebSocket connections that the server could not cancel.
