Dear kingcope,

It's vulnerability regardless of DoS impact, because it allows attacker to access special DOS devices (COM1 in this case). E.g. it could be used to read data from device attached to COM1 or prevent another application
>from accessing this port (or LPT), because access to ports is exclusive.
