22.2.9 Algorithmic Complexity Attacks

Certain internal algorithms used in the implementation of Perl can be attacked by choosing the input carefully to consume large amounts of either time or space or both. This can lead into the so-called Denial of Service (DoS) attacks.

See http://www.cs.rice.edu/~scrosby/hash/ for more information, and any computer science textbook on algorithmic complexity.
