Description Michael Kaplan 2020-10-05 10:12:40 UTC
An attacker on your local network could send maliciously crafted packets to other hosts running
kdeconnect on the network, causing them to use large amounts of CPU, memory or network
connections, which could be used in a Denial of Service attack within the network.
