We are getting multiple reports of a DoS attack (causing high CPU load that prevents normal use) against TippingPoint IPS devices.

We got a call from TippingPoint, stating that in their opinion this is not a "DoS", but a "high load" issue.

For more details we'd like to urge customers to contact TippingPoint directly. They are working on a patch and advisory which should be available shortly.

Edit: We've received a report that TippingPoint has now released a patch for this issue.  The patch version is TOS 2.1.4.6324.
